Low back stripey top

This month I bought my first version of Burdastyle magazine. I can’t believe you get so many patterns, amazing! I decided to try this low back top first, and was keen to use stripes and make a Breton top. I added a band to the neckline, which i didn’t put in perfectly, and the sleeves are a little baggy, but actually despite this I really like it. My husband came home and told me he liked it, so that means it’s ok ;)
I can’t wait to give the rest of the patterns a go :)

    Fantastic fabric. Did you hem the sleeve’s/bottom? Or leave it raw. I always have difficulty with the hems on knit fabrics – but your top looks great.

      I hemmed the sleeves with a twin needle, but I don’t really like the effect so I left the bottom unhemmed. I think it looks ok :) Glad you like the top!

    This is SO cute!!! I love it! It’s really flattering on you. You definitely have me wanting to see if I can hunt down a copy of the most recent issue of Burdastyle magazine now! :-)

    Nice job! I didn’t look twice at that pattern in the magazine, but after seeing your version, I might give it a go. I love the stripes and you lined them all up perfectly.
