Holiday Sewing

Strike a pose...

This is Burda 9573. Midget decided she would prefer loose sleeves rather than the elasticated ones.  The sizing is very generous and I would be inclined to go down a size if I was remaking it, but Midget is happy with it so who am I to say!  Midget chose the fabric which is Heather Ross Snails Orange and Blue from the Far Far Away 1 range.   I used the selvedge to put a wee motif on the pocket.


Happy New Year and Happy Sewing

Hi Becky - thank you. Yes it is an easy top to make and I think would be fine for someone less experienced, it is also relatively quick which appeals to me.
