A relatively easy to make top for a novice based on a pattern from Burda (June, 2013). I am new to sewing so I did struggle with some parts of it, so probably this is not a project for a very beginner. Next time I would shorten the straps for approximately 6-8 cm before cutting the fabric (they were too long and the neck cut ended under my bra) probably because I am only 162 cm tall) – this time I had to do at the very end – not as easy. Also I would make the top more fitting – but that is a matter of taste.
I made it from a thin viscose jersey – probably too clingy for a good fit.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
