Drawstring blue top

Added Aug 6, 2013

Athens, Greece






Hi!!! This is based model 124 from Burda issue 7/2009. The original pattern had a wrap at the back and a tie at the waist…I removed them both because I wanted a really easy to wear top for the hot summer days. I also added a doubled band at the bottom. It was a very quick project. Next summer I plan to use the pattern again as it is, with the wrap and the belt and all:)

    Great top. You really know what you are doing when it comes to color. This combination is nice.

    The top is one of Burda’s best. am going to make it too ( maybe some day when invent how to combine the wrap on the open back and my bust that needs a bra). The band on the bottom is nice finding, in fact, you created a new pattern. In combination with the pants, the top looks fresh and bright. Your look will make many necks broken:))

      Thanks!!! The pattern is one of my favorites too and I would have sewn it as soon as I purchased the issue if there wasn’t the bra problem. Neither I can go without a bra with this top (I will look totally bustless!), so I hope that you invent the way! As for the broken necks: I wore it yesterday and I had no victims:P

    Great top! It is so flattering. I love the red capri pants and great wedge sandals too! You should make this top in every color and prints too as it really suits you :)

      Oh, really? I wasn’t so sure about it so thanks a lot for the positive feedback! Of course I will sew it again, it takes only 1 hour and a little piece of fabric! I’m glad that you liked the sandals, they are my favorites!
