Here's the line drawing so you can see how lovely it is:
For my muslin I cut a 44 through the bodice and a 46 through the peplum. It was way too big, which is odd, since that is my "regular" Burda size. I think this top might run a little bit on the large side. Definitely make a muslin if you are thinking about making this.
This is a 2.5 dot pattern, but beware, it is fussy to make (and I only did a quick and dirty muslin.) You have:
a. The gathered dart thingies on the front of the bodice
b. The inset square sleeves (front and back)
c The gathered bodice sewn to a tiny and seriously curved yoke edge
Now on it's own, none of these things are all that hard, but all of them on one garment are pushing it!
Also, take a good look at the center front in relation to the front edge. They are a full inch apart, which means that you'll end up with two inches of overlap in the front when you finish the edges and match up the CFs. That seems like a lot, especially if you use the buttons and loops as instructed.
I have a new (smaller) pattern all traced and ready to go, and I am going to go for a wearable version using the fabric in the photo above. Wish me luck.
Anybody else making this top?
