I wanted to get my February Burda Challenge garment out of the way and I’ve been wanting to make this cute top from the February 2013 Burdastyle. Double score. I really like several of the garments out of the magazine this month. I also like the skirt pictured with the shirt.
Let’s see, overall, it’s very fitted. Um, very fitted. Luckily the material is very stretchy. I’m not sure I love it to tell you the truth. It makes me look very busty (score!) but also very hippy (anti-score). I’m also not loving the length. Oh well, you can’t love them all. Don’t get me wrong, I do like it though. I think it would make a cute dress in a different fabric and a bit more ease through the torso. I made my typical size 34. Maybe I’ve gained weight since yesterday? Maybe this one is just clingy. I do really, really like the gathered shoulder. I think it’s a neat look and it’s super easy to make. I think I have only an hour or so into this top and that includes the tracing and cutting.
