Boatneck Love

Not only did I work up the nerve to cut into my art print fabric, but I managed to finish my Burda World of Fashion Boatneck top!

Normally, I avoid boatneck tops, I just don’t like the way they look on me and I feel like I’m constantly tugging at the neckline to adjust the fit. But Burda’s version is definitely a keeper – it fits great (not to wide of neckline so that it accentuates my broad shoulders), (seems to) stays in place, and I’m in love with the deep hems. It also went together without a hitch (although I did forget to sew the sleeve hem before setting in the sleeve which made for some tricky stitching)…. this pattern is definitely a keeper! Consequently, I plan on altering the pattern for my version of the Walk On The Wild Side Mesh top.

    Stacy, I love it! I’m thinking this would be good as a maternity top. After seeing yours, I’m gonna have to trace this one. Thanks!

    Looks great! My main problems with boatnecks are usually that they’re so wide my bra straps show, but this seems to be okay for that. And you get extra points for making it in the same calendar month as the magazine!!
