I made this slouchy top using the Batwing Top pattern as a base. I used the maximum size even though I normally wear an XS-S. I’m glad I went larger because this top is extremely loose and comfortable. I scoured the downtown LA fabric district and found this heathered, stripey knit for a great price. Instead of doing the mitred V on the neckline, I cut the neckband longer, knotted the remnants and let it hang. All of the hems and seams were meticulously pressed as I went along to prevent the finished garment from looking too rumpled. This is my first Burda project and I am so excited to join the community! Looking forward to trying more of the patterns.
I’m pleased with the outcome of this project because it is, most importantly, wearable. I wore it out the night of to dinner with a friend and it was a hit. That friend dubbed it the Sailor Top & the name stuck :)
