Burda Style 01-2018-102 – Knit Top with a Twist


The RTW Fast is helping me focus on filling in the gaps in my closet. Instead of just sewing whatever suits my fancy (not that there’s anything wrong with that), I’m purposefully sewing for my needs. Right now I need a casual top or two. I feel like I’ve been wearing the same ones over and over.

BS 01-2018-102

This Burda Style top caught my attention with its twist detail at the waist and the pleats hidden under it. The fabric was purchased last April at Tissus Mode De L’Orme in Granby, QC. This rayon-Lycra knit has a soft hand and four-way stretch.


The center back seam helps to create a nice shape and would come in helpful if adjustments were needed. I just glanced at the instructions so I can’t comment whether they were good or not. The pattern is quite long. I shortened my top by 2 inches.




While I have your attention, here is another pair of Jalie jeans I made. This time I used black denim purchased online from Cali Fabrics. The top pictured below is Burda Style 10-2014-103. I made it a few years ago.

  1. Love all the garments! Especially envious of the perfectly-fitted Jalie jeans, also love the twist top, looks like it would be flattering to different figures. I don’t comment often lately, but do look at and enjoy your wonderful projects and great photos and information. Thank you for taking time to share your work.

  2. Both items look lovely. I’m glad to see others are finding the length of some tops too long. I thought it was just me. This gives me confidence to start cutting.

  3. I love your twisted top! I have that issue of Burda and completely missed that lovely pattern. Must take another look. Your jeans look fabulous too.

  4. Yes, I love your new top and your new jeans (I love all your makes, it seems), but what pattern did you use for your red/black top? I love that envelope neckline, and the colors look terrific on you!

  5. Your Burda top is very flattering on you, Luci, but I really love the deep red and black bateau neck top with your black jeans — gorgeous fabric and well-matched with the neckline choice!
