Burda WOF 09/2007 model 120…I have to say I’m not trilled with this pattern and had to adjust it in order to fit…

The insert portion with the lace embroidery is very very low, the straps are too far away to the sides on the shoulders, the collar is only in one layer and finished with a coverstitch or double needle…lots of things I did not like about the pattern and the instructions in the mag, and keep in mind I am a convinced Burda fan!

So after lifting the insert, taking in about 2cm! over from the sleeves and over the shoulders, folding in half the collar for a clean finish, I still wished I had made the lower belt about 3 times wider….

The embroidered organza was really easy to add, since it already had a golden thread inside, I used a metallic thread in the machine with a special needle for metallic threads, and simply sewed it onto my fabric by machine, along the existing embroidery.

I am using the same embroidery to add to a dark brown jeans jacket I’m working on from a Boutique pattern.

Big headache with this project, but I do like the end result, it was worth it, I would not do it again… :) I think…maybe with a different fabric as an insert and knowing all the changes I have done…maybe I’ll reconsider one day.

    I’m so glad I saw this. I had just pulled out the book to make that pattern. You have done a great job with it. I will probably still have a go but forewarned is definitely forarmed!

    Mirela, yesterday i finished a blouse using the same pattern. I altered mine, too(I needed a 34 and 36 was the smallest size). I like the way I turned out, though. Mine is black;) But yours is much more elegant; I love it!
