I am taking part in Mel and Kat’s Burda sew along and even though I cut it out in April, I did complete this top at the beginning of May, so it still counts right? As hinted at in my post about fabric a brac I made a boat top that I wore.
I made up Burda 8664 in the boat fabric. I know it has no boats on it, but my boy said it was boat fabric as it has blue circles and anchors. He is obviously a boy who knows his nautical styles! The only adjustments I made to the pattern was to lengthen the body a bit as even the longer view looked a little short and to make the ties longer.
This top was simple to make and I now plan to make another in knit fabric. I wore it all day and out that night and it was super comfy. I felt like I was channelling Zoe wearing my nautical top and mustard cardi.
We had great fun doing a photoshoot up at the old museum building – thanks to Nicola.
And now a knitting pattern pose…
