Marrikesh Burda top 7828

I know I was supposed to save the rest of this Marrikest knit fabric from Pitt Trading for a new pair of bathers but I changed my mind and whipped up this top on afternoon.
I was feeling cold again #Winter.

Burda 7828 offers a dress or top option.

What did I change?

The top has a tie bit on the front bodice. I didn’t include this feature. I just wanted a top with no fuss.
Neckline progress view
The fold over picot edge elastic was too pretty to not use again on the neckline.
The hem for this top is the same as the pattern, so if you’re average height or taller, extend the hem for the top.

How long did this take to make?
With the overlocker and twin needle on the sewing machine, this top took 2 hours to make from cutting the fabric to hemming it.
So easy to wear with my jalie jeans on the weekend.

Thanks again to Pitt Trading for these knit fabrics and notions. I’ve had lots of success with their knit fabrics as has Susan and Jillan. They’re highly creative sewers.

PS: The rasant thread is a dream to sew with.
