I was watching a Burberry fashion show and one of the models was wearing a long sleeved shirt which had draping in the torso. And then just today I was looking at the H&M website and saw a shirt very similar to the one in the Burberry show. So I went to my local H&M expecting to walk out with a $40 shirt and instead found out that there are no H&M stores in the US that carry the style.
The only place I can find anything like it is at Burberry, which sells it for around $500. Yeah, not going to happen.
Can anyone tell me how I’d start sewing a shirt with draping in the torso? Do I just take a stretch of fabric and sew darts in the top to create the draping? I really have no idea how to create the draping!
Here is the photo from the magazine. ANY help would be greatly appreciated!
