Burda of the month… for February

Despite endless planning, this is the first Burda I’ve managed to make this year! I think I’ll get a top sewn for June, but who knows. I have just not been sewing at all, in fact, I even doubt I remember how to sew. I definitely felt that way before making this top (in April…) and then was surprised that I totally did.

This is 2/2018 #120, a very pretty blouse. I think it looks better on me than on the dress form. I hope so, anyway! I feel elegant and put together in it, and the fabric is too comfortable to be polyester. I’m not sure what it is, but I suspect rayon. I had enough left to cut a bralette, waiting in the wings to be sewn.

None of the bands are interfaced, and I did get some minor twisting. I think it’s okay given the softness of the blouse overall. I had some trouble deciphering the directions for the low v-neck in the back, but whether I got them right or not, the slit for the tie is tidy.

So for June, I am thinking about this pleated shirt:

I also think my husband could use a new shirt, and 6/2016 happens to have a mens shirt pattern that goes small enough for him. Considering we’re almost halfway through the year and I have one project down, two shirts is probably too ambitious, but we’ll see!
