Burda 7203- the Redemption

I took another whack at this Burda 7203 pattern with this cool 80s clown fabric. I do kinda like it but I think I would only make it again in a sheer fabric to wear over a tank. Since I usually avoid dolman sleeves I didn't realize how weird this top feels on. Or is that just me?

I did end up making this a size smaller than the last one (this is the 14) and did an small FBA on it as well. I also shorted it above the bust through the sleeves which also made the sleeves narrower, which I like.

 The darts on the back make it look like it has a yoke.
I'm putting the pattern in the drawer, not the garbage.  But I'm still not sure if I want to commit my beautiful chiffon to this pattern.


  1. I love your top - the fabric is so vibrant and it looks like the fit is great.

  2. Personally I think this top looks great on you and I love the colours in the fabric :)

  3. Looks nice on you. I wouldn't commit my precious fabric to a pattern either, until I'm crazy about the muslin.

    1. Really, though, its just fabric. We can get more!!

      Working on you DIII challenge yet? I really put my foot in it didn't I?

  4. I love this! I've been wanting to try this pattern...
