It's been a while since I posted...well it is almost 2 weeks. That's a stretch for me. I have a few pieces in the works, but was slacking in general. This latest FO has me feeling back on track and I'm ready to plow through my UFOs....that's what I always say! lol. Yeah, right. lol.
This is my fourth FO from the 07-2009 issue of Burda. I actually have a fifth one that I want to change into a top and skirt, instead of the dress I have now, but that's for a different post....
Here's Burda's description:
Pretty prospects - Asymmetrical cuts are THE trend this summer. Add a bold colour and a comfortable fabric and you‘ll have a winning garment! Hem elastic lends this one a slight blouson shape. Burda sizes for this pattern run from 34 to 42. I made the 42.
I have a tendency to pick wild, vibrant and sometimes busy prints for my fabric. For this one, I opted for a teal colored knit with NO PRINT. I like the simplicity of this pattern and can imagine making this in a colorful print or even in a black and white fabric, too. This is a great top that can be dressed up with heels or made San Diego beachy-casual with white capri's and flip-flops. I purchased the jeans and shoes from a local store on Garnet, called Closet. The earrings and bag are both from Forever 21.
