The Me-Made-May works well for me so far. Everyday another selfmade garment with no repetition yet. Now I managed to actually sew something new for me. Lovely Katarina, another Berlin based blogger, inspired me to try this pattern, BurdaStyle V-Back Top 106 09/2012. I liked her Mockblood version. I decided to do the piping as well. In the end I made no real piping, just folded jersey stripes inserted in the darts.
Katarina wrote, that she chose a size bigger than her usual size to get a slouchy look. Since normal sized tops look slouchy on me anyway I did the opposite. Once again smallest size available was a 36. As my usual SDA (Skinny Dwarf Adjustment) I omitted the seam allowance to grade it down. I didn’t add volume interfacing to the collar like the instructions told me. Why would I want to force the collar to stick out? My fabric was way lighter than the fabrics Burda used for their versions. It’s more a light everyday top than a jumper.
I really enjoy taking part in the Me-Made-May. I got so much encouraging feedback and discovered so many inspiring people. A big hug to the whole sewing community!
