A shirt, not another skirt

It seems like all I’ve sewn recently is skirts (well, five skirts is a lot I ‘spose). Then I realised I haven’t blogged about a simple sleeveless shirt I made amidst all those skirts. The shirt has already been seen on the blog, but I haven’t told you about it!

And I should have blogged about this because it’s probably the first time I’ve made a BurdaStyle Magazine pattern within a month of the magazine’s arrival in my post box! Woohoo!

It’s an interesting style, almost like something from the Pattern Magic books with the inward pleats at the neck .

I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of it this season, under jackets when its cooler and on its own when it warmer, either tucked in or belted out.

Technical details

Pattern: BurdaStyle 09-2011-128

Sizing: 36-44, I made a 42

Fabric: A light cream cotton batiste with a subtle sparkly surface treatment. This is the third garment I’ve made from this fabric.

Changes I made: None! This one was made up exactly as Burda instructed

I think I can see some more tops in this style in my future…

    Oh, I like this! I must say I completely overlooked this pattern, but the collar on it is catching my fancy after studying Alexander McQueen collars over the last few days.

    This looks great on you! I love this shirt and I’ve already done a muslin, but I just haven’t found the right fabric for it. Your version is making me want to go buy something and make it right now!

    This pattern caught my eye in the latest issue of Burda to arrive on the newspaper shelf. I also liked the dress with the same shoulder pleat. Your skirt is great too.

    I like this pattern too. Your blouse looks so nice. It is a great style to wear by itself or under a jacket.
