Pattern: Burda WOF 04/2005 model number 112.
Materials needed: 1.50cm wide, 0.75cm long bidirectional stretch jersey
I got this beautiful jersey in Tel Aviv, had enough fabric left for a simple top with a drape.
Overlap left top front part over bottom front part, wrong side over right side. Baste the gathered top edge to the lateral part of the front. Baste from lateral to middle marking.
Stitch lateral seams (and shoulder seams if you kept the V in the back).
The twisted part in front should adhere to your body, otherwise the blouse is too large.
The V in the back is finished using the V fold band. Place the band over the back, right sides facing together. Stitch the band in place. Clip inside the center of the V, cutting bother the blouse fabric and the band together. Finish sewing from right side with a cover-stitch or twin needle.
Use a stitch in ditch to sew the shoulder lines to the V band edges.
The instructions might sound complicated, this is in fact pretty easy to make. I finished the sewing of this and another simple top in about 2 hours last night. Wearing it now! I think 2 hours is what you might spend in a mall looking for a top, right?
Pictures of the final results coming soon!
