Lucretia - wrap top

Added Oct 13, 2011

Pusemuckel, Germany






This time I am completely satisfied with my wrap top!

Since a while now I tryed constantly to create my own jersey wrap top.
Look at the last pics: In the beginning I was inspired by the vintage pattern simplicity 5018 and then I liked the asymmetrie of the white blouse from Byron Lars.
I also sewed the asymmetrical jersey skirt which matches nicely with the top, I think.

Whenever I will find time I will share my pattern, using this tutorial
May be there is someone in the community who has the same measurements like me (german size 42).

Material Notes

romanit jersey


Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Casual, Classic

    Irmchen! OH MY GOODNESS!!! This is SOOOOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL!!! It TRULY is one of the MOST beautiful tops that I have EVER SEEN!!! I just got through downloading your pattern and your “instructions”. Oh, and by the way…your English is better than some people who speak it and write it for their first language! I cannot WAIT to try to make this top! It will be a VERY difficult task for me…for a couple of reasons. 1) I have not done much sewing AT ALL in my life time. What I have down came out very beautifully. I actually came across a jumpsuit recently that I had started about 20 years ago and just never finished for some reason. The material was still in like new condition! Looking at this website has really gotten me to wanting to pull it out and finish it! That would be so AMAZING! 2) Back to your AMAZING top…the second problem that I would have in making your top is, it would be WAY TO SMALL. I have a lung disease that makes me use oxygen and take LOTS of medicine. The medicine made me gain lots of weight and because I need the oxygen it is almost impossible for me to excercise. SO! I will have to enlargen your pattern. I was wondering if you knew if I could use the same software program that you mentioned to digitize the pattern to make the pattern larger? In fact, I would be VERY OPEN to ideas FROM ANYONE WHO READS MY COMMENT as to how about to best approach my problem. As I stated, I have VERY LITTLE experience in sewing! As long as it’s a straight forward project with little or no problems, I can do ok. But…ALTERING THE PATERN/CUSTOMIZING IT? Yea, not so much!

    Thank you so very much for sharing your work! You are a beautiful woman inside AND out! You did a TRULY AMAZING JOB!!! – Shelly

      The pattern is a free download here at BurdaStyle. You may use it but it is forbidden to share because it stands under copyright (all rights are reserved by me) just like all patterns here at BurdaStyle which are uploaded from the members.

      Thanks Ralf! It makes me happy that you like my top!:-)
      I will add the pattern in the next days but I am too lazy to make a tutorial in view of my bad, bad english.

    Wahnsinn, und dann dieser Rock dazu – echt edel! Dass Du Durchzugbänder gemacht hast, habe ich gerade erst gesehen. Wie das Band im Rücken verschwindet gefällt mir gut. Der Rock ist auch toll, auf diesen Burda-Schnitt hatte ich auch schon ein Auge geworfen (von Vogue gibt’s einen ähnlichen)!

      Hach: “edel”… das hat Petra auch schon gesagt und das höre ich gern! :-)
      Burda? Vogue? Der Rock ist eine eigene Bastelei aber es ist immer wieder verblüffend, dass man überall etwas ähnliches finden kann!

      I am glad you like my top!

      Tomorrow I try to digitalize the pattern… but because my bad english I don’t pretend to add some instructions.

      Thanks again! :-)

    Gorgeous – and oh so flattering! You look fabulous. I’m going to see if I can hunt down a copy of that pattern for my own!
