This is my February make for the Burda Challenge 2015..

I liked the pattern #127 from Burda 02/2015.. It’s very cute and very cropped summer top with slit at the back.. Not at all practical for winter or spring.. That’s why I decided to combine two versions of this pattern – #127 and #128.. The other one is top with long sleeves.. Maybe my version is more like #128, because the only thing I changed is the hemline.. I kept the high-low hemline from #127, and added only an inch or two to make it a bit longer.. I finished the neckline with a neckband, only because I like that look with knit fabrics..

For couple of years I had these two knit fabrics in my stash.. They are a perfect match – the same type of fabric, colors and motifs.. Both were remnant bin finds, with few months apart.. Lucky me :) I saw this top as an opportunity to use them.. While looking at the outcome, I think this top would look better with some other fabrics.. With these two prints it’s hard to see the shape of seam lines.. At some point I’ll probably steal Ellen’s idea for summer top, because that’s the best version I’ve seen so far :)
