Finger Painting

Pattern Review Burda Style 10/2009 #135B

When I saw this fabric I loved the colors.  The swirly floral design reminded me of finger painting. (fabric is sold out)

I bought it without a definite pattern in mind.   The first few patterns I chose didn’t work out.

Finally I matched it to a pattern in October 2009 Burda.  (see pattern photo above)

I stabilized the neckline so and it does not drape as loose as pictured.  I adjusted the armhole and shoulder to get a tailored fit. 

I tapered in the sleeve so I can push them up and expect them to stay up. I enjoy wearing this shirt.  It has shimmer and shine without being too showy.

You did a great job Joanne!
