I'm on a roll

I sewed this top yesterday.

Burda 8735

It's Burda 8735, which is unfortunately out of print. I used a polyester knit that I bought a long time ago at Stone Mountain and Daughter. I'm pretty sure it was a sale fabric in their upstairs room. It was perfect fabric for this top. It is snuggly without being too bulky. The top has raglan sleeves and was very easy to put together on my serger. I wrote up a full review on here.

And check it out! I'm blocking Lara in preparation for sewing up the seams.

Lara is a Debbie Bliss pattern (from her book Alpaca Silk). I used Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk yarn, which is scrumptious. The sweater is knit in one piece, from the cuff of one sleeve across to the other. So all that's left is to sew the collar to the back neck and then sew up the under arms.

  1. Oooo, I like the top, a lot. It reminds me of a top that I used to have that was one of my favorites, so soft and comfy.
