Brigitte gingham top - Burda 06/2011

Added Aug 7, 2011

by Irina Schwab

Aylesbury, Unite...






This is my first top from the “Brigitte Bardot” collection in Burda 06/11.

So easy, no zip or buttons. The whole project took less than 2 hours.

I have used pre-prepared bias binding tape instead of bias cut fabric. With scooped Carmen neckline and 3/4 length raglan sleeves.

Worn with high-waist skirt and belt.

Material Notes

Gingham embroided cotton and bias tape

    I’ve come back to this top now I’ve got the right fabric! Can I just ask if you changed the neckline at all? Yours seems so much better than any one elses! :-)

      Thanks! It is so easy to make, it is worth a try in between two more complicated projects!

      I cheated, I had the skirt for years, I use it at work! We’ll keep it a secret. Of course I could have made the high waist trousers in the same Burda issue, but I simply haven’t got the time xx
