Description

I had a “trip” around in my Burda magazines and found this pattern in 06/2005 issue. I think yellow is very nice, special for summer and wanted to try this pattern. I found a curtain ring for the key hole and stitched it by hand around the ring. I have skipped the seam in front and I made a double bias for the neckline and stitched it with a twin needle. I’m very happy with the outcome and have already started cutting a new one :)

    Sun’s favourite :-) If the weather is bad, you surely can shine instead of the sun in this nice bright top:-)))

    This is a nice top Ellen and in yellow, it fits you very well. I already have done it twice many years ago but haven’t any picture. It’s very comfy and chic.

    Lovely top! I am taking apart an old top with a feature like this to make a pattern from it. I was wondering how to sew the the ring in – I might have to try it by hand

      Thanks a lot! I have already made another one because I like the style very much :) As you can see I have skipped the seam in the middle and I have only overlocked the part in front that goes around the ring and sewn it by hand as you suggested. Happy sewing to you! :-)

    Everybody loves your absolutely well done top. Normally yellow is for me a hate-colour but it looks fabulous on you. Very precisely work. You can be proud. Best regards, Caro

    You handled that fabric so well. I am scared of jersey and twin needles!

      Oh, you shouldn’t be…! After all the lovely fabric you have been sewing with this is very easy and I’m sure you will enjoy making garments of jersey fabric :-)
