After reading a bit on Pattern Review about some of the tops in Burda Easy Fashion, I thought that I had better make a muslin for the Tunic Top before I cut into my pretty Emma One Sock onionskin. Good thing I did, here’s my results:
Since the onionskin fabric has stretch, I eliminated the zipper. As you can tell from the picture, this top is entirely too large. Not only does this top create a droopy boob look, but the neckline is huge, as well as the sides, etc. In short, this top is too big and just looks horrible on me. I don’t feel like playing with this pattern at the moment, but I’m considering going down two sizes if I try this out again.
I also like the shorts the model is wearing in this view too. I tried on a pair of cargo bermudas at Old Navy the other day (they remind me of the Burda pattern) and I realized, you might as well call me Frodo because I look like a hobbit in them. I’m gathering that bermudas are made for taller people than I, or else everyone is going to look as dorky as I did this summer when they are wearing these shorts. Needless to say, I’m crossing this project off my list until I see someone else review this pattern.
