With our weather alternating between 40's and 70's (it's supposed to be 68 today), the itch I had to make a coat/jacket has disappeared. Poof! I just can't get into it. Sigh. I really do need a jacket. Everything I have is either too casual or too heavy. Maybe in January I can get the coat mojo working again.
Soooo...I'm ALWAYS ready to make another top. LOL I'm working on a new-to-me Burda pattern,7220 view B. This is a cute cowl neck almost Sewing Workshop type pattern. It's got a nice pleat in the front and an off center one in the back & a buttoned pleat on each sleeve. They're using crepe backed satin for their version. But I have a nice rayon batik from Sawyer Brook that has been marinating for several years in my stash; I think it will work nicely here. I purchased 1/4 yard of some matching crepe satin for the small tab looking thing in the front and for the sleeve cuff.
Oh, I thought I would mention since the technical drawings don't show it, but there are darts in this pattern.
I think by making this 3/4 sleeved, I'll be able to make this a 3 season blouse.
And a quick view of the back with that big pleat. I'm betting this would like nice as a sleeveless top too.
Well this is all I have for now. I'm hoping to get this finished in the next couple of days.
