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!

Burda has a video class you can watch on grading up or down any size if you want to pay…
you can grade the pattern if you take the difference needed for the size you want….
Thank you – I’ll have a look now.
