This week’s CRAFT Pattern Podcast is one we featured back here in 2007, the Maddy Top from BurdaStyle. It’s a stylish top that you can sew up this weekend to wear right away. This top’s signature look is centered on the diamond gathered in the front. Make sure you choose the right fabric because the lighter the fabric, the harder it will be to sew the diamond. One tip is to secure the gathering with a stitch line before you sew it to the other pieces of the top. For more how-to’s related to this project, check out the Maddy page on BurdaStyle.
Also check out the mod version of Maddy in Stretch, with some tips for using the pattern with jersey fabric.
