Description

I thought this pattern #103 Burda 06/2014 was very interesting with the cowl neck in front and V neck back. I had this abstract jersey which I bought at www.jerseyfashion.nl – Thanks to Regan who introduced me to this web shop! I had some knitted band in my stash and have used this around the sleeves and the V neck back. I think this top is perfect for summer days :)

Material Notes

Viscose jersey and knitted band.

    Your idea to use the band instead of the twill and bias tape is wonderful. I was hesitant to try this because I didn’t want to fiddle with that or make the tape. I’m definitely on board now. Now to find more sewing time.

    Oh, neat top, and awesome fabric. It looks great on you. I think I’ll get busy on tracing it out as my magazine arrived today. I think the knit band works nicer than the suggested twill tape. Nice photos :-)
