v neck top, burda 07/2012

Added Mar 26, 2014

Antrim, Co Antri...






I bought myself a new burda spring/summer style magazine recently.(plus size) because i can adjust to fit. This was in it. I actually bought the magazine because i liked the dress on the front. The biggest majourity of items have already been in other magazines though so that was a bummer ?? Including this one. The only project i had’nt seen before was the front cover dress. It was’nt a waste though as i would never have found this top pattern again as i have to many magazines lol , this sews up really well and as you can see it can be changed with a solid neck. I actually wore the black & white top back to front last saturday and it looked good. This would be a great top for holidays x

    Awesome tops!! Look great on you. You wear this design well!!! I really like your fabric choices. I’ve always liked this design, but I have narrow shoulders, so I would forever be exposing myself! :-}

      Thanks rita, i have broad shoulders but rounded ones!! Handbags always slide of me lol unless i grip them or put them across my body. I got a tip on here about using ribbon and snaps on the shoulder seams and then attach the top to your bra,!! Ellen uses this method as well. I ordered snaps and will attach them once they arrive. I detest my bra showing x

      I have tried the snaps; it ended up pulling by bra straps off my shoulders. So I crossed the straps in the back, and it ended up affecting my neck~~~~ And I agree with you, I hate my bra showing as well! I am so glad this site is working right now; I have missed everyone!

      I’ll let you in on something I have figured out, and I really have been paying attention to it lately. (to much time on my hands LOL) If the site has a problem, it usually is fixed/working again on a Monday by lunch (my time).

      Thanks ellen, these are great little tops to just throw on. I am going to make some satin loops for the shoulders so i can attach them to my bra . They are designed to go of the shoulder but not in this weather lol x

      That is a great idea. I’ve done it several time too, I use a snap button to the loops :)

      Hi ellen, i have ordered some small snap buttons on ebay as the shop.here closes before i finish work. I got the tip from another sewer on here. On holiday i would’nt care about the shoulders as i would wear them over a bikini but at home i hate seeing my bra strap showing. I was forever pulling the shoulders back up. In the end i put the top back yo front with the deep v at the back x

      Yeah, that’s a good idea too – to use it the opposite way ;)

    An excellent top, Mary! The neckline is one of the best in the world, I like it especially with a contrast band, it’s very nice indeed. One of your projects that inspires me:-)
