This is a great way to turn an old or too large T-Shirt into a cute women’s top. It features stretch lace at the hem and neckline, and crisscross straps in delicate elastic.
Make sure you do not use page scaling when printing at home. Measure the test square to check that your pattern printed correctly. There is only one pattern piece, used for the front and back. Pattern includes 1/2 inch seam allowances.
You will also need to download the instructions and also a Lace Guide in your size. I could not figure out how to upload them to Burda Style. All files are available at
Please upload any projects you make with this. I would love to see them!
