A very easy top to add a bit of sparkle to plain jeans. This was the first top I ever attempted – I only got my sewing machine in December 07.

Material Notes

Not sure – it’s stretchy and has silver lurex thread running through it.





Burda for the pattern

    You say you used Burda Pattern 7866 for this. Where do I find this Pattern to make one for myself??

    It’s a dolman sleeve. Thanks everyone for all the positive comments!

    Looks great, especially for a first top.

    Is this a dolman sleeve or set in? The shirt is great.

    Sorry, I used Burda 7866! I’ve only just started sewing so thought I’d best learn the basics first before I start making my own patterns. But it’s actually really easy – just a big T shape cut on the fold with a hole in the middle for your head, then a front yoke and back yoke attached at the waist, and a tie belt to cover the seam.

    Ooooooh, I LIKE this a LOT. So you’re saying you made the pattern for this yourself? If you’re willing to share, i;d love to see a how to!

    Thanks! I wore it to a works party and everyone was very surprised to learn I’d made it myself, which I think was a compliment!
