Blooming flowers and all sorts of other floral details continue their fashion trend season after season, everyone loves it and I am not an exception. Silk, chiffon and jersey sections of the fabric stores are like blooming gardens and I could not resist the temptation – I bought this beautiful silk-like remnant piece at Jo-Ann’s for a fraction of a price, found matching soft beige jersey and looked up that Burda Style pattern that I bookmarked a while ago. Let’s get to it!
Fabric: silk-like floral fabric piece and soft beige jersey. Original pattern suggestions was to use only stretch fabric, but since this shirt is quite loose – I figured non-stretch fabric will work as well, and it did!
Additional items: elasticated band for the bottom of your shirt/sweater, bias tape for the neckline
Pattern: Burda Style 9/2014 pattern 114 A.
Skill level: EASY. The only tough part might be sewing with knits and jersey – practice first on a small piece of remnant or scrap fabric – use zigzag sticth and double needle if you have.
Suggestions: If you have a basic sweathsirt pattern – just alter it by adding 2-3 sizes, to make it loose fitting. Great addition to your closet for sportswear and casual weekends!
