Burda Shirt Finished 7525

IMAG1048Okay ladies as a few of you maybe aware I do not like posting on our site unless it is Burda based, hence I can post about this shirt I have just made for Jeff for Christmas, and yes you are right upon closer inspection it is The Grinch That Stole Christmas material, he picked it and said he would wear it so here we go !!!!!

This is pattern number Burda 7525 and was quite easy to follow and put together, I did have to make some changes as my partner is very broad across the shoulders, still not quite enough so next time a tad more…

Have  a fantastic Christmas one and all….

Cheers Fleur

Now this is the Burda mag I am using to make a couple of skirts out of, sorry can not remember which issue this is, when I have unpacked I will hunt it down and update for all. below is the finished skirt, i also made a black wool one and worked like a production line sewing the same stages as I went along.

I have also written about our great weekend away over on Fleurs Adventure In Sewing Mayhem .com with a little more info on what I got up to…
