I’d been doing slow sewing recently so it seems a good time to do some quick sewing with Burda 10/2012’s gathered front knit top (pattern 114). I used a lurex cotton jersey with tiny golden and silver threads. The fabric is quite thin and has both crosswise and lengthwise stretch. The top is more tight fitting than it looks on the magazine’s photo but it’s definitely comfy and nice to wear with jeans. You can see the making of the top on my blog:
Lurex cotton jersey, vilene bias tape, twin needle, ballpoint needle
