Bright floral trousers Burda easy fashion F/S 2009

I bought this fabric last year with the idea of making jeans. Now I'm happy I changed my mind!
One more make I totally love. :D
I made a muslin how the pattern would fit this time. It's Burda easy fashion F/S 2009 boot cut pants, number 3.  I adjusted it for slight sway back and took away fullness from the back pieces in two places. The pants really look good to me now! :)

Test T-shirt


I made a test long sleeved T-shirt for my favorite human.
The fabric is a viscose jersey I had in my stash and was happy to put to good use, even for a muslin.
The pattern needs some adjustments but he wants to wear this one anyway! :D
Not bad for the first time.

Colorful and flouncy Burda 3/2008-113


I should have been doing something else today, totally, but all those colorful scraps just had a magnetic pull to them...And here's another finished top! #2018 Tops that pop



It's Burda 3/2008-113, adjusted for the tall me. Perhaps this time I should have kept the pattern as it was, but I didn't anticipate the heaviness and pull of the bottom flounces. The seam should sit at the waist. Eh, well...


I totally see myself making crazy cakes in this top. With lots of whipped cream and fruit. 😂
Crazy. Of all things, I'd bake in this...

White top Burda 12/2014-105


Here it is, my top for the 2018 Tops That Pop  sewalong!

I was curious to try this pattern from Burda 12/2014. It is a tall pattern and it needed just a few little touches to fit well. I made a muslin with the sleeves but didn't like it, so I opted for a sleeveless version, which is also more appropriate for this time of year. :)

I love it! Even more since it's a true stash busting project. Everything from stash. I bought this nice elasticised white floral jacquard ( like light matelasse) years ago to make a skirt, but never got around to doing it. I bet because it was white. Perfect for a top, though, and super light. I feel like I'm wearing nothing.

I think I could make this one again. Since it's pieced, it's also a great pattern for upcycling projects.

And now, what's next?
