The thing is… I mean, what it was… If I can explain. Yes. Just that. Quite.
Oh dear. Karen’s OCD kicks in again. Another Burda top, this time with a Seventies colour scheme. I think this is probably a marmite print – you either like it or loathe it. It clearly called to me. My one reservation is that the cotton is a bit too stiff. (Bought for £2 a metre off Walthamstow market.)
As you can see, this blouse works great just loose over jeans. Two things I should mention about this make that I omitted last time:
- The instructions don’t ask you to under stitch the facings, but I’d really recommend doing that.
- I abandon the Burda instructions when it comes to attaching bias binding to the armholes. I just go my own way, which is the Sorbetto way.
This fabric was still folded up waiting to be used when I got home from work last night. That’s how quick this make is.
I wonder if this blouse is one answer to Handmade Jane’s recent question over how best to wear yellow. What do you think?
