Burda - 03-2008-110 Sleeveless Gathered Top - #2

Here is that Burda #110 top again. Do you love it? I really like it. I never wear white because of my 17 children. I really like it though. It was really hard to get a decent picture of it inside or outside.




This is the most accurate color. It is a creamy white. I'm holding it because there is no zipper yet.

This picture shows the most detail. I used the selvages for the hem. I so totally nailed the pleats and the "knot" this time.

Thank you Kay Y (does anyone else snicker when they see her username? I've been teaching middle school too long) for helping me with the curving hem problem! She suggested that I make a tiny horizonal pleat to make it curvy without losing the scalloped edge.

I'll give you guys more details about the inside (partially lined), the hem, and the zipper treatment tomorrow. Right now, I'm toast. This is item #2 for the mini-SWAP!

This is super cute! And I think it's going to be a really versatile piece for you. I can see it with jeans, with black velvet or leather cigarette jeans for evening, and under a suit! Looks really adorable on you. Everything is these days!

Do you really have 17 children?

That's a lovely top. One of these days I will get to sew clothes for myself again...

I really only have three but it feels like 17 most days. :)
