Burda 6911 v2 – Spotty

I previously made this top back in the Autumn, using a very lightweight jersey. This time, I used the fabulous quality spotty cotton/spandex jersey from New Threads Quilt Shop. I purchased 1½ metres and have some fair sized remnants left over. This fabric has great stretch and recovery, stitches and presses like a dream.

I made view B of the pattern in the largest size (20) plus some adjustments for my rubenesque figure! The sleeves were shortened to bracelet length and I chopped 3 inches from the length.

Due to the thickness of the jersey I was a little unsure about how the twist would work – but I need not have worried, it came out just fine.

This top is great to wear with jeans and skirts. I am sure to get a lot of use over the coming weeks of what remains of Winter and into Spring.
