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.
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.
