Top de atar Burda Maio2008 mod120 – Tie-on Top BWOF May2008 mod120

Português
English (uncheck the other box and check this one)

O modelo original pode ser visto aqui (website Burdamode).

Descrição: Top de atar na cintura, ombros descaídos, decote em V e cós largo com tiras de atar para lhe dar um ar mais casual. As bandas de contraste funcionam como vistas exteriores. No original foi confeccionado com jersey metálico.

Material usado: malha com desenho “pied de poule” em preto e branco e jersey fino preto para os contrastes.

Este top foi o projecto ideal para aproveitar este tecido que já tinha guardado há algum tempo e para treinar para o projecto seguinte, o vestido Burda Maio2008 mod121, que usa o mesmo molde para a parte do corpo.

Embora não seja difícil de fazer, é um top que dá algum trabalho. Segui as instruções com a excepção de que entretelei as bandas do decote da frente, além da das costas (usei entretela de malha fininha). Além disso alinhavei e assentei a ferro os valores de costura da orla exterior das bandas ANTES de coser a banda ao decote, em vez de os virar para dentro depois de coser a banda ao decote:

Também pespontei tanto a beira exterior como a interior da banda:

Aqui podem ver do avesso; as bandas funcionam realmente como vistas exteriores!

As bandas das mangas são aplicadas de forma diferente (tipo um punho), pelo que no interior ficam assim:

Mostro também o detalhe da frente, onde se iniciam as tiras de atar:

E no lado direito, a abertura por onde passa uma das tiras que depois dá a volta à cintura (a imagem foi clareada):

Conclusão: Um top com um design muito na moda, que se encaixa bem na vertente preto&branco da minha lista. Não é difícil de confeccionar, mas necessita que se tome bastante atenção às instruções. É um top que fica um pouco curto (o vestido também tem cintura subida), mas se o desejarem é fácil de alterar para ficar mais comprido (basta acrescentar na orla inferior do molde das costas e frente).

Da próxima vez vou mostrar alguns dos tecidos novos que comprei, vou falar de um projecto futuro mais trabalhoso e os meus planos e também vou agradecer algumas prendas que recebi de amigos!


You can see the original model here (Burdamode website).

Description: A clever top with oversized dropped shoulders, V-neckline and wide waistband with ties that wrap around the waist. The contrast bands on the neckline are just like exterior facings. The original is made of metallic jersey

Materials: print b&w jersey with “Pied de Poule” pattern and thin black jersey for the contrasts.

This was the ideal project for 1 - use small piece of fabric that was aging in my stash for some time and 2 – provide some training for the next project, the BWOF May2008 mod121 (dress), which uses the same pattern for the bodice.

Though this is not a difficult to make top, there is some work involved into getting it right. I followed the instructions except for some details: I interfaced the front neck bands and not only the back neckband as instructed (used thin knit fusible interfacing) and also thread traced them for accuracy; I also basted/pressed the outer edge SAs to the inside BEFORE applying the neckband to the garment (the instructions tell you to turn the SAs to the inside after the neckband is sewn in place to the neckline edge):

I topstitched both edges of the band:

In this picture you can see the band on the wrong side; it really looks like a facing, but applied on the right side!

The sleeve cuffs are a little different (not facings but like regular cuffs), so they look like this on the wrong side:

This is the center front bottom, and the ties:

And on the top’s right side, the opening through which the left tie passes to the outside (this picture has been brightened):

Conclusion: A very trendy top, that goes well with the black&white set of my planned wardrobe. It’s not a difficult project but some care is needed, mainly reading the instructions very carefully. It’s a little short (I believe this is intended, and also for the dress which has a high waistline too) but if you care to make it longer all there is to it is adding the extra length at the bottom edge of the front and back patterns.

On my next blog entry I will show some of the new fabrics I have purchased, I will talk about one of my future projects that will take a little more time and effort (I’m not starting it now, but I’m planning ahead) and I will thank some friends for some of the goodies I’ve been receiving in the mail!

Tany, me encanta este último top. Adoro el dibujo "pied de poule". En español decimos "pata de gallo". Me gusta mucho, de veras, el diseño, la tela y como te queda. Enhorabuena. Ahhhh.....ya tengo copiados los patrones. Gracias. Un fuerte abrazo para tí y buena semana. Paco

Cute funky top in a classic timeless "pied de poule" fabric.

Very cute! I love that you chose to use such a traditional looking fabric for this one!

Carolyn (cmarie12) said...

Wow ~ Tany you are just banging out these very quick but cute and stylish tops! Love the black 'n white herringbone fabric in this one!

Lori said...

Very cute top, Tany, you are on a roll.

Isabelle said...

Another success, dear Tany!
Your version looks so much better than the Burda's model. Theirs did nothing for me. Yours is so classy and much more flattering.

I am so glad to see you sew. You are in my thoughts... Sending big hugs and all my love!

Claudine said...

I love it! It will look great with some high-waisted trousers

LauraLo said...

Very cute, I love the mix of fabrics. Your top looks better than the one in the magazine. I'm looking forward to see new fabric and new plans!

Maja said...

Ana Carina said...

Olá Tany,

Um modelo preto e branco é sempre uma peça básica e essencial num guarda roupa de qualquer mulher!
Muito gira esta blusa!

Celina said...

Ficou muito elegante essa combinação do pied-de-poule com o preto a contrastar. Eu também sou fã.
Ah, e os meus parabéns atrasados (só descobri ontem no blogue da Ana Carina qual foi o dia)!

KayB said...

Yeah, great little top and as you said quite handy to use up rests. Must remember this!

Mamã Martinho said...

Mais um pronto! Assim a lista vai acabar rapidamente, isto se não adicionares mais! Imagino que já deves estar a fazer o vestido. O Top ficou bem giro, e foi uma variação ao teu guarda roupa (refiro-me ao facto de ser curto). Gostei das barras em preto nas mangas, na gola e no fundo do top.

You are just going to town on the jersey tops. Isn't it fun to just sit down and bang out some fast tops? They all look great. Have fun wearing them.

Cafe Couture said...

Tany - looks good on you, will you use the same fabric for the dress or a lighter one? I'am asking this beacuse I tried to make the same bodice for a dress ad it came out desastrous beacuse of the heavy weight fabric. As to the print, I'm not really fun of black and white pied de poule print except for larger ones on coats, or scottish like " prince de galle". Good look with the dress.

Tany said...

Obrigada a todas!
Thank you all!

Paco: Gracias! A mí también me encantan estos dibujos clásicos y mezclarlos con estilos más modernos. Un abrazo muy fuerte

Stacy: I'm glad to see you're back!

Isabelle: Thank you! You are in my thoughts too, dear friend!

Celina: Obrigada! :)))

Cafe Couture: Hi! I'm not using this fabric for the dress (this was just a small remnant I had in my stash); I'm using a white/yellow/black print knit
(Gucci inspired) and black contrasts for the dress. You can see a picture of the fabric if you click on the link to my spring/summer project list (at the sidebar). At this point the dress is almost done (with a few changes because all I had was 2m of fabric, instead of the 3,5m required), and it is turning out quite well! I'm sorry you had a previous bad experience with this pattern...
