Burda 7549

   While out of town in AK my husband and I celebrated our anniversary---13 years together (8 married).  Since we couldn't celebrate then, we postponed until this weekend (when when our little Girl was at a sleepover for the weekend).  So to make the occassion really special I knew I needed a cute little outfit. Since we were going out on the town, so to speak,  I wanted to wear something casual but sexy. So I got to looking through my patterns and remembered a top that I had cut out a month or so ago but hadn't had time to sew it up. I thought it would fit the ocassion perfectly---it was playful, and casual with some sex appeal. So I whipped it up and wore it. I tried to make a second version in the printed fabric pictured (below) but didn't have enough fabric for it. Nevertheless, the blouse worked perfectly and we had a wonderful celebration and I look forward to many more years with my Best Friend and Hubby!!!!! Well here's the blouse review.......
 
Burda 7549
Pattern Description:
Loose fitting blouse with neckline gathers
Pattern Sizing:
I cut out the size 10 since I knew there was alot of ease in this pattern. I didn't necessarily want to get swallowed up by it.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Absolutely!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very much so!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I pretty much liked the pattern from start to finish. I have to admit, I'm not always super excited to do gathers, but I love the effect in this top.

Fabric Used:
Matte jersey
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't have to make any!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would looooove to! I love to have duplicates of cute knit tops. I'll make this in a printed knit next time.
 Conclusion:
Great top and its Super easy to sew! If you like this style it's definitely worth sewing.

  12. Thanks for your comment! Congratulations to you and your hubby ... we celebrated 9 years in July. :) I like the premise of your blog, that after 10 years of practice one can be an expert. Does this apply to parenting, do you think? :) Will "visit" again soon!

  28. Victoria, I have a question. What is the content of your matte jersey? Is it cotton, a blend, poly? I bought a lot of matte jersey from fashionfabricsclub.com and love the color but the content is synthetic and I'm not sure how I feel about it.It's not rayon which I love. It's maybe poly. I've bouhgt cotton matte jersey that was awesome. Anyway will you also shoot me an email response at designrefinebemine@gmail.com. I just love yours and if your fabric is like mine I still might use what I bought. Thanks!
