Hiya. Just a quick post from me today, I am feeling exhausted and really want to crash in front of the telly but we got rid of sky (cable) a couple of weeks back and haven’t got a free-view receiver yet. It’s good for evening productivity, I know, but every now and then it feels really good to just turn on the TV and put my brain on standby.
The photos of me in this post are terrible – you can hardly make out the fabric. Hopefully the inside ones help a bit. This is a cute little sleeveless shirt by Burda – 7052. I’m not sure what I think of the sleeves on version C, I mean those things are big!
The fabric is a cotton with blue embroidered dots. Sadly this, along with a number of white things I’ve made recently, is quite see-through and I feel like that ruins it a little. I can wear a singlet underneath but it doesn’t look crisp. I love the feel of light white fabric and forget about the practicalities of it. Anyway, minor gripe.
I thought the pattern was great. This was my first time doing a collar without a stand and I was expecting it to look less professional or something, but I think it looks fine.
I’m wearing it here with the muslin I made of the simplicity/cynthia rowley shorts recently. The fabric is some polyester blend I picked up for $1 at fabric-a-brac and I never intended to wear these (thus the lack of overlocking and that chunky hem) but I quite like them.
So, I do like this top pattern – it was really easy and uses hardly any fabric, but I’m just not sure if I like shirts. They are fun to sew but I can never seem to create an outfit with them that seems ‘me’.
I feel a bit boring saying this but I do have one more pair of these shorts to come… what can I say, I love shorts!
