Fold over top - Burda 10-2007-115


For a detailed review click here. For a short review.....I was looking for a very quick top to finish off the June capsule. I wasn't feeling the love for another Ottobre T so decided to have a go at this Burda fold over top. As the smallest size is 38 (and I need a 34) I decided to just morph the fold details onto the Ottobre. Easy! And quicker than tracing the whole thing out. I also took out 1.5 cms in the armhole area. Lucky I did as it still is a bit low. Will raise it some more for next version.


I had great trouble working out the fold - Burda instructions are double dutch in relation to this! So if you want to make this top, refer to Christina's fabulous photo tutorial on Pattern review. I wish I had done that before I started. Would have saved quite a bit of ripping out and head scratching.

I am wearing this top to work today. But I have gone all conservative with a grey skirt, black books and a green necklace.

I like this! Good idea to raise the neckline, now it's work-appropriate.

Vicki, very stylish top. It appears to be similar to the new Jalie(2806) top, which I really like too :)

Great top! I've got the Jalie version of this to try out at some point.

Vicki - I like your top. It's very similar to the Jalie one that Deepika reviewed recently and then added further instructions for the fold after she visited Jalie.
