Busan Top by Itch to Stitch

I am not a real fashionista like some seamstress are. I am more of a follower when it comes to fashion, or maybe a late follower. I usually don't really like all the new things that are 'hot' at the moment. Only after seeing things for a long time (a few years) I am like, 'that is actually quite nice'. However, now that I sew for myself and also test for myself these things sometimes change. I love to be challenged in life and that is what pattern testing does for me. Both in skills, but also sewing outside of my comfort zone when it comes to designs. 
When I first saw the Busan top* by Itch to Stitch I wasn't sure whether it was something for me. But I love patterns by Itch to Stitch, so I decided to sign up for the test. I love the pleats! And now that it is finished I love it (and hopefully I am wearing something that is 'in' now 😉). My Christmas top is ready!
I used punta di roma, which is one of my favourite types of fabric to sew with for myself. It always sits nice (and doesn't accentuate the wrong parts). Especially the pleats are nicely shown off in this punta di roma.
Fabric: Punta di roma that I bought during the outlet days at the Stoffenstraat.
Pattern: Busan Top by Itch to Stitch

Fabric in 2018: this week 0 in - 1 out (2018: bought 63 - used 96 fabric - used 4 gifted fabric - used 31 scrap pieces of fabric) - in total 63 in 131 out

  2. Ik vind hem heel mooi, met die mouwen, zou hem alleen wat langer gemaakt hebben voor mezelf.

    1. Klopt het model is vrij kort (met mijn lengte prima, maar in jouw geval zou ik hem ook langer maken).
