Sure, it’s May now. Expect my April Burda challenges sometime in June. This is the top that went wrong every step of the way. It was so bad I scrapped it and started over (see the result here). I botched the height adjustment on this when I added 1.25″ in length above the chest, and then I botched a whole mess of other things. Once I removed the binding, yet again, I took it in to sewing class, where my teacher helped with the fitting.
In the end, I like the fit. Yellow is not my go to colour, but I only have a handful of wovens in my stash to choose from. This fabric is lighter weight than the gingham, and works better.
The gingham has 25% stretch, while this one has none, so I am surprised that this one is more forgiving over my curves/bulges. The pattern called for lightweight blouse fabric with some body, that gingham just has too much body.
And I was pretty surprised to see that they are opposite. I really should mark the front and back when I’m cutting.
