Burda 7761

This is the first Burda pattern I’ve sewed.  It’s Burda 7761, a very cute jumper.  The pattern is also from an older BWOF issue, but I wasn’t a loyal subscriber yet.  From what I can tell, the sizing is the same as the magazine patterns.  I sewed a size 40 and made no alterations.  I didn’t read the directions in detail, but they seem to be more helpful than those in the magazine.  This was easy to sew up.  I interfaced the waist band with fusible tricot and finished the front and neck edge with bias tape:

All seams were serged.  The fabric is a thick wool jersey that Mom destashed to me.

Worn over Simplicity 2603 (llluuuuvvv that top!). 

On the knitting front, my Vivian cardi is coming along:

contest 127This is such a cool knitting pattern, the fronts and back are knitted together as one piece, up to the armholes.  I just started on the first sleeve.  Usually I work the 2 sleeves at the same time, but I can’t figure out a way to do that with this one, since the directions have you working the sleeves in the round (I hate doing one sleeve at a time).  Obviously, I’ve taken a break from sewing up my Contest clothes, so I guess I’d better get back to it.  I only have a shirt and pair of pants left to make!
