Description

I sewed this project last year, I wasn’t 100% sure if I like it, because this pattern is for lightweight fabrics and I sewed it with cotton. This is what happens when you don’t read the suggested fabric section!
It is a lovely striped cotton with a retro touch, but it doesn’t look very flattering, specially the smocked waist and the straps. Once I finished it, I had to hand washed it several times to soften the fabric and it helped a lot.
Besides the bad fabric choice, it was easy to sew, the fit was ok and it’s perfect for hot days!
Pattern: Burda 6968 top B
