Burdastyle Summer Tank, Dress And Jersey Cowl Top

Hello...
Finally my little boy recovered from cough and flu, so today I have time to write a post on this blog.
I finished three projects before my holidays but I didn't have time to post them. The summer tank and dress based on free Burdastyle pattern. The pattern is originally for a tank but I think it will be good to make a dress too.


SUMMER TANK
Pattern: free pattern from Burdastyle, Summer Tank Top 05/2013 size 34/36. Beware, the pattern is too big, the size of the armhole is almost on my waist. So, I have to reduced both side of the tank 3". And I also reduced the length of the tank 3.5"

Materials: 1.5 yard of printed rayon from my stash - it's not the most comfortable fabric but the print is beautiful.

This is a very easy and fun project to make. I drew the pattern according to the instructions from Burdastyle, reduced the side and the length of the tank. I sew the tank right side together with 1.5 cm seam allowance. Then sew the drawstring and insert it at the neckline. I used 4 cm for the hem allowance. Done!
I really love this tank, it is very fresh to wear on hot summer day and the drawstring at the neckline is totally cute:)

SUMMER DRESS
Pattern: I used same pattern for the tank and added the length down to the knee. I also made a belt from the same fabric.

Materials: 2 yards of very soft printed cotton from my stash.

Dress belt, 3.5" x 56 " on fold

JERSEY COWL TOP
Pattern:  Burdastyle Jersey Cowl Top 03/2013 size 34 with little adjustment on the waist (my waist is size 36).

Materials: 1.25 yards of jersey in strong pink color, me-made bias tape from the same fabric and same color of thread.

This is another easy, fast and fun project to make, I will definitely make more from the same pattern but different fabric and color.



Happy stash styling!

  3. All such pretty little garments again- I like them all, all quite different moods. The dress length for the burda tie top looks lovely - the belt is a good idea or it would be a big tent. I am glad your little boy is better.

  8. Hi Hana, as usual they're all lovely. The burda top looks like a wardrobe staple for the tropics (I need to download it). And I agree, the pink (looks red in the pics), top is a great colour for you.
