Burdastyle Woven Tee




 Burdastyle magazines always seem to suck me in when I am 
at the bookshop.  The photos are always lovely and inspire me.  The trouble is, often that inspiration doesn't extend to making many of the projects.  


Burdastyle 08/2015 115 is however quite a simple top to make once you get past drawing up the patterns.  On that note, my go to way of making these patterns is plastic and a Sharpie.  They last as well if not better than paper and it is extremely easy to trace the lines. My latest batch of plastic was rescued from the packaging my lounge suite came in.  As you can imagine, I have quite a bit.

The fabric I chose is a piece of op shop chiffon in a large scale floral print.  I matched this with some black op shop ribbing.








I love this new top and it blends in very well with other items in my autumn wardrobe.  The style is quite casual but the fabric elevates it to smart casual and it even works well as a work top.  


For the most part, autumn hasn't arrived yet and the heat continues. I suspect though, that is about to change.  I have quite the backlog of autumn makes to photograph.

  1. This is lovely. I love burda style magazine patterns too but my sewing wish list is far in excess of reasonableness! This pattern is on the list..

  4. Love your fabric. Hope the opshop finds pick up after some stash busting. Great tip about the plastic. Must definitely try this as tracing is the worst part of the burda experience

    1. At least the lack of op shop finds means I am destashing a bit more!
