I threw together Burda 6911 in a couple of hours. It doesn't use much fabric, and is a casual but interesting design.
|Nugget really wanted to play while I was modelling on the deck. Who can say no to that face??|
|Sorry not sorry about the leggings and uggs. It's cold here.|
The shoulder seams have a small piece of elastic zig-zagged in (for stability). Then I sewed in the sleeves flat and seamed them as one with the sides. I dislike setting-in t-shirt sleeves, and this way always seems simpler.
|I like the different stripe directions. Also, I'm trying in vain to ignore Nugget.|
I ADORE this style, and could see myself making the other two variations on the pattern envelope. I'd forgotten how much I love Burda's wearability and modern design. I also find their sizing to be very consistent, and they have a pleasing amount of ease.
What do you think of Burda's patterns? Do you have any go-to pattern companies or retail stores, when it comes to practical basics?
