Drapey neck

I love this kind of retro look neckline and going thru old Burdas I found style 119 in 2/2008. I straightened the side seams and added tunnel w/elastic instead of a regular hem to get a more blousey look. The fabric is a light grey melange in woven viscose, which works great for the inbetween seasons.

Material Notes

Woven viscose




Garment Type
Business, Classic
Chiffon, Blends, Knits/Jersey, Silk

    Loving it! Adding the elastic was very clever and adds to an interesting look…well done.

      Graaazie! Sai che tu eri la mia ispirazione per finalmente tirare fuori un pezzo di jersey bianco che avevo da un bel pò e fare la cannottiera con i ruches, grazie!
