Bring on summer – because these shirts and blouses are basics for every occasion. These top sewing patterns are from the May 2013 issue of burda style magazine, and they sure have what it takes to be hits of the season!
Sophistication always looks good! This Straight-Cut Blouse is basically no-frills, but draws attention with its gathered neckline with decorative button loop. Snap fasteners are cleverly concealed under the softly draping front edge. If you prefer a more blousy look, simply use batiste instead of washed silk.
Summer here we come. This charming Tank is a last-minute piece that is quick to sew. A raglan cut at the arms allows the sun onto your skin. It can be individually shaped by adjusting the drawstring at the neckline.
Feminine and elegant, yet wonderfully comfortable. The collar on this lovely Blouse has a sophisticated twist, which isn’t even that difficult to sew. On one side it’s pulled through the front slit then fastened with concealed snap fasteners. The stretch crepe satin ensures that is sits nicely on the body.
This knotted front Top is super casual and cool to wear. The mini sleeves and plunging V-neck are also charming details.
This Tank welcomes the first rays of sun! Gathers at the neckline and a slit at the front create a feminine silhouette. The richly embroidered trim on the straps is a delightful eye-catcher.
Wide bell sleeves elevate this basic Top to a dressy wonder! The cut is tapered towards the hem, making it subtly figure-hugging.
