This pullover ist the top part of a burdastyle-pattern of 10/2011 but with a retro-style. But really retro is the fabric that I used. It is from the sixties and drove my cracy beause the pattern needed a lot thinner fabric… But in the end I finished this project… more on my blog at http://frautipmatic.blogspot.com

1950s | 1960s | Vintage Sewing

Piece in between

By on December 18, 2011

Hello dear readers!

I am following this blog quite a long time, as I have to confess an obsession of sewing retro-clothes and reading diy-blogs. I live in Germany near Stuttgart and I am sewing since two years now. I love vintage patterns, and that’s why I also love Ebay, flea-markets and second hand-shops. I would be happy to welcome you sometime on my blog: http://frautipmatic.blogspot.com/

Now I would like to show you one of my creations. It is the top part of a burda-style dress but with a 50s/60s design. That’s why I’d like to show you the outcome.


I did not have enough fabric to make the whole dress. But I think half of it is quite nice as well. :-).

I hade quite a few problems with stretching the burda-pattern, which is printed in the magazine as a short-size, to a normal one.

But after a lot of ripping and alternating it worked. To complete the look I made the “bow-belt” from Tilly.


Thanks for reading!

Bye, bye have a nice day!
