Jersey Wrap Top – Burdastyle #122B 7/2009

This wrap top is a great pattern in spite of my sewing issues: I made my hem and edge seams too thin, the ties could be a little longer, the back keyhole didnt sit flat initially etc. I didn’t/couldn’t follow all the steps to the tee exactly/correctly lol, but I just used my instincts for the classic wrapped styles, changed to a sharper needle, and everything came together satisfyingly enough in the end. The under layer ties up inside with the outer layer under the right armpit. I used a jersey off cut from a charity store, in a similar deep rust/ruby shade as the stretch velvet remnant found in my vintage stash, to make the bound edging and ties

Material Notes

70s stretch velvet/velour in ruby/rust red (4 way stretch), rib knit-jersey in rust shade (4 way stretch), iron on interfacing.

    I finally did some pics for this top lol, matched up with my groovy flares! The weather is somewhat less humid now that its autumn, kinda, so I wasn’t sweating as much as the previous two months, and could wear these items no problem. Groovy!
