UFO’s Burda 7804

I dug this out of the UFO pile.  This Burda 7804 asymmetrical top and straight skirt made from light blue chambray needed help,  it was started last summer.    I unpicked the neckline and armhole bias,  resewed and topstitched with a slightly darker  double thread.  Topstitched the entire garment. Looking better.

Mitred corners get rid of the bulk

Mitred corners get rid of the bulk-  love mitred corners

Mitred corners are a great look,  check out  these Louise Cutting  Videos

The outfit reads like a dress.  The linen chambray is light and cool just perfect for the plus 30 C temps of late.  UFO saved!
