Pink Tara with gathered sleeves and buttom

This is my first ever top that i sewed using burda pattern. I’m not quite sure if i did it right.I forgot to put some elastic band…instead i put gatherings at the buttom…since i have some extra pound.I put some garters too in the sleeves because i don’t like the look of it when i sewed (sleeves). Since i don’t have serger machine it don’t look nice.I got a problem with the material i used because it is like double fabric.A cotton fabric with a silky crepe fabric….But i was really happy after putting the gatherings…..Tara design is one of my favorite.

Material Notes

cotton with silk…

    Dont you just love tara pattern. I think your version is inspiring. Great idea to do the gathering at the bottom. Looks very nice on you.
