Do you have a TNT that you just can’t stop tweaking? Do you think about tweaking non-stop, all day? Do you tweak in your dreams? Well then, my friends, I’m here to tell you that you have a tweaking addiction. Get it? Tweaking Tweaker? It sounded funnier in my head.
People, I can’t stop tweaking this Burda Batwing pattern. I. Can’t. Stop. When I showed my mom my new top she said, “Another batwing top?” I thought if I made it up in a print this time, no one would notice that I used the batwing top pattern again. Guess I was wrong.
For this tweaking, I widened the cuffs a little because the way the pattern is laid out on fabric, the stretch is going the wrong way at the wrist, so you need more room there. I took out some of the fullness of the batwing effect and raised the neckline.
And here’s the finished top.
I used a fabric from deep stash again. It’s from Fabric.com circa 2009, I believe. It’s a rayon lycra knit. Not sure if it will pill, but it looks like it might. We’ll see. It doesn’t have as much stretch as the other knits I’ve used, so the drape is a little different. But I love the print.
So what do you think? Should I give this pattern a rest? Since I’m getting rid of the first two tops that I made from this pattern, I now only have two true batwing tops and the loose fitting summer tops I morphed from this pattern (which don’t even look like batwing tops).
And do you tweak incessantly too?
