Many BurdaStyle members love the 50s and sewing from vintage or vintage-inspired patterns, and we do too, so we made our own version of a bustier-inspired top with cap sleeves. The style lines resemble a bustier but are a bit more modest. Take Mary Katrantzou’s cue and cut this pattern from a print; or Sonia Rykiel’s knit bustier in peach, nude and black; or Rachel Comby’s 1-piece bustier. If you’re a fan of the matching fabric covered shoes, check out our tutorial if you’d like to learn to make your own matching ensemble.
Member mixtlii added a peplum and trim to her sweet summertime bustier.
Member bhs made her bustier from black stretch lace and a printed denim skirt to match.
The pattern calls for stretch fabrics, but we used a woven and added some ease so it would not be too tight:
125 cm (49 in) wide stretch tulle lace: 0.60 m (3/4 yd) for all sizes. 150 cm (59 in) wide stretch jersey: 0.60 m (3/4 yd). 140 cm (55 in) wide knit ¬lining: 0.40 – 0.40 – 0.40 – 0.45 – 0.45 m (1/2 – 1/2 – 1/2 – 5/8 – 5/8 yd). Vilene Bias Tape/stay tape.
