I made this pattern but any of the Burda patterns added to this post on the right would create the same finish – all in one – no separate sleeve. You can see how to do the French Bias Binding here on Burdastyle. I used this technique for the neckline and the lower garment edge. I cut the pattern higher at the front lower edge than the back. I didn’t cut the satin sleeve edging on the bias though. I cut with the grain of the satin.
girlcharlee cotton knit. Really nice quality and love the orangey red shade of the stripe. I wanted a bright loose top to wear with jeans in Australia over the new year. I made my own bias binding for the neckline from an Italian silky polyester lightweight crepe-back satin (I found in Brunei). I don’t own a bias binding gadget but have decided to get one flown in from the US! will make the job easier next time.
