I fell in love with this T-SHIRT in the february issue of Burdastyle! Pretty, sexy, a bit vintage… And honestly, stripy-navy is one of THE trends op 2010!

Basically, I altered a bit the pattern for my size (a plus size ;) ) and it turned out great! It is perfect with my new navy skirt (made in 2 hours yesterday) and my lovely wooden shoes!

Material Notes

Stripy jersey. Navy and white.




Garment Type
Preppy, Romantic, Vintage

    I love this top. It’s the entire reason I bought this issue of burdastyle. I dig how your version is so similar in color to the original.

      I like doing it with jewel toned tights as well.

    Oh man I seriously love that T-shirt, it goes so well with the skirt. I’m just getting into clothes making and I am noting that I need to make the patterns bigger, is it easy to do?

      Actually yes, I only sew 4 things so far, and all came from burda, and as long as you have a ruler, you just add the amount of sizes you need, and when you try on, check if everything falls into place…
