Navy and cream polka dot top #119, 2/2008

I was inspired by BurdaStyle member ‘Sewing and Style’ to make this top after seeing her burgundy chiffon top made with Burda #119, 2/2008. I didn’t have enough fabric to make the collar the full width but I am happy with how it turned out.

      Thanks so much liliv. Our summer isn’t far away now so this top will worn yet again. Today I have been out shopping and just happened to pop into my favourite Fabric Store and I found a lovely knit to make this top once again. I think jersey knit is going to be more comfortable than the 2 silk ones I already have.

      Oh, lucky you, our summer just passed:( Jersey is always more comfy! I want to make a silky one version of this pattern now, a polka dot like yours would be perfect!

      It is a while now since I made this top and it has been so useful, and particularly wearing it with jeans! Yes, gotta love polka dots.

      Yes I have been sewing quite a bit and loving it. I have deferred from university for 6 months, so I have plenty of time to sew. And thank-you for your sweet comment.

      Thanks Anniemollison. I actually thought the top of your dress was this pattern when I saw it here the other day. I gave you my vote for the Tessuti Awards, so good luck. I can’t believe the talent entering that competition.

      I wish I had had this pattern because I winged it myself and tried 3 times to get it right! Thankyou for your vote.

      Thanks Merche. It is silk but it wasn’t too bad to sew. I made it with French seams and they always look so neat on the inside.

    ooh – this is a bit special! I’m partial to polka-dots normally, but I’m just in love with the gathering and the neckline + tie on this. I’m not surprised you were inspired – it’s gorgeous schnui!!

      Thanks again Melanie. This fabric is from the Fabric Store; you have one in Melbourne I think! I overlooked this pattern for ages but when I saw it on ‘Sewing and style’, it really inspired me and again it was very easy.
