Burda's jersey knit twist top

Super quick make = super quick post! 

I made Burda's jersey knit twist top which has a dolman sleeve-like effect. I have a top like this in all black which is one of my favorites. This one is a little more special because it does what seems like a Pattern Magic twist within the pattern making.


Here is a photo with the 1st seam sewn. It only has 4 seams and then sleeve and bottom hem plus neck stitching!



I actually had this fabric in my stash since November. It is one of those trompe l'oile prints where it appears to be knitted but is really just printed. 
Good for me because while I like sweaters, I also tend to run hot and sometimes sweaters are constricting. 
This was a fabric I added onto my cart on Fabric.com to get free shipping! 😆😆 Initially I thought I might make a plain turtleneck out of it, but this is so much more interesting!




I probably will make a few more of these when I get a chance!
