Review: The Blue Burnout Assymetrical Top NL 6453

My style is very  uncomplicated which is why I LOVE this top! I whipped this together in just a few short hours. It's Newlook 6453 and it was love at first sight!  I love the fit and drape of this top. Besides that the burnout fabric I had in my stash was the perfect weight for this project. It's lightweight and sheer. Unfortunately you can't see the burnout design in this photo since I'm wearing a dark shirt underneath but would easily show up with a lighter one. This sewed together easily. I made view A in pattern size 10. I normally make the 12 but since I didn't want alot of ease I downsized. I like loose tops but I don't want to feel as if I'm swimming in them! I could have a dozen of these tops in my wardrobe. Makes for easy and effortless style which I'm all about. I paired this top with light denim jeans, animal print peep toe heels and a hanging necklace.

This was a fun top to make and wear! Now I just need to find more fabric to make more :)


  1. Very nice do you know if that comes in a plus size pattern?

  2. This is such a nice top! I really like the burnout pattern too! BTW, I found the Youtube channel for you and Mr. Jim, and have been watching some of the older episodes. I really like the subject matter you cover, and the perspective you both give. Please cover dressforms, if possible. I am considering purchasing one, and would like to swing for a professional dressform, since I will be using it a lot. However, if there are more affordable ones that will do just as well, I would like to consider those too. Thanks for all you do!

  3. I love the top and you look great in it. It doesn't hurt that it's my favorite color. Thanks for the creative nudge.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment and for following me on my 10,000 Hour Sewing Challenge:)
