Burda 6849

May 14, 2017   /   bymotherof5  / Categories :  Feeds
I really wanted to sew another Burda shirt but this time in a stretch denim.
I did all the work, making my muslin last time so it was a pretty quick sew.
I shortened the body and added pleats to the sleeve but apart form that, just sewed up my previous muslin.
It is a very nice shirt but very long in the body and I am very short in the body.
I am really happy with the back, the fit is spot on and it is very comfortable and allows me good arm movement.
I love  the tummy ease.
It is firm enough through the bust but I usually drop a bra size when I stop feeding and it doesn't feel too tight.

I sewed it up in a medium weight, stretch denim, from Spotlight.
I topstitched it with white jeans weight thread and used river stone buttons.
Now that I have made my muslin, I have a go to pattern for a stretch fabric.
I really don't mind re-reading a book, re-watching a favourite movie or re-sewing a good pattern.

Now to find the perfect non-stretch woven shirt pattern.

Thanks for reading, Happy Mother's Day!
