I was invited to brunch this past weekend and I thought, what a perfect opportunity to make something cute and new. Stephanie, Elnora and I went pattern shopping together and Stef and I loved Burda 7625.
She and I are similarly busty and we thought it would be a cute festive top. Well guess what, we were right!
My version is a lot less gathered but that's because I have to fill those gathers out and I didn't need an expanse of fabric sitting on top of all of that. I used a Fashionista Fabrics Boho Jersey so I maneuvered the pattern pieces to what I thought was a good effect. I really like the action at the bottom because that's where I want to focus more attention, less attention at the top. The fabric has two borders so the back of the top has a little bit of that going on, I thought it worked out pretty good. I've already worn it twice and I even spilled some sauce on it (bound to happen sooner or later).
And yes, those odd white lines in the photo, snow is falling on me as I brave the cold to take the photo. Well, snow and some dog hair.
