Here’s my Burda Challenge garment for January. I decided on the knit raglan top. It’s weird, but I feel like this top looks so much better in person than it does on a photograph. Although, photos don’t lie do they? I love it in person, but these photos don’t look all that great. The light right now isn’t all that easy to photograph in either. It’s been in the high 30s and 40s here so it’s a mess outside. Wet, wet, wet. There is really not much snow left. I want some of the snow you people are getting in the Lower 48.
Anyway, details. It’s a basic raglan tee with a few gathers. One is at the bust on one side, and the other is the front and back hip on the opposing side. The sleeves are long and the length of the shirt is tunic length. I had a really hard time matching stripes because my fabric was off grain. It’s National City Swap Meet fabric and was like a buck.
I have been sewing up a storm so I’ll need to show you people all of that stuff. I’m going on another cruise soon so I need to make some easy dresses and swimsuits to take with me. Really excited about that!!!!!
