Finally! After one year on BurdaStyle, I have uploaded my first design :)
This top was inspired by another that my husband’s mother had bought for me for my birthday. I love it so much that I decided to make another one. The inspiration top was a bit shorter, with short sleeves, and in a very thin cotton that I think is better suited for spring. I also added the little bands which button above the cuff on the sleeves, because that is a style I am really into right now. When I get a chance I will upload the photo of the original.
I used a stretchy gray wool or wool blend that I found really cheap at a mill end store last year. I paid something like a couple of dollars for that fabric. I have recently seen an identical fabric in my favorite fabric store for 12 euros a meter!
