The sewing pattern was really easy to do, as directions were given for how to draw this pattern. So no tracing of “hidden” lines here, yay!
I used some bright pink leftover fabric, which I had bought at the Dutch fabric market. Although this decision didn’t seem to be the best and the fabric slipped quite easily and the yarn tension was a horror, I was quite happy with the outcome. Instead of pink yarn I used white one to get a nice contrast.
Also instead of sewing the ribbon to hold the top together, I used the chain of a long necklace I’m not using anymore.
I don’t know how Burda sets up their sizing scheme, but usually a size 38/40 is really good for me. But this time it was much too wide and armholes were just too big. I had to stitch it down by at least 4 cm on each side and it is still wide enough.
So, how do you like this bright pink top?
