Knotted Back Shirt :)

Added Jul 13, 2019

Nedre Vats, Norway






This fabric cached my eyes on the marked in Utrecht in the Netherlands, and I couldn’t leave it behind!
I decided to make a shirt which I found in BurdaStyle 06/2019. I’ve made a little alternation for the pattern since I wanted to have a round neck in front instead of a V-neck. The V-neck at the back with the knotted ties are a great detail :)

    Made this top too. Did the original V front, used one colour aqua blue stretch and guess what, bought in Utrecht. I live quite close, so neste time du er i Utrecht, let me know, quick coffee and chat at the caf would be nice. I was in Utrecht again last sat. wearing this blue top, which was admired, the knotted part indeed stands out and creates a special look. med venlig hilsen, TamsinII (Ingeborg)

      Hi Ingeborg, Maybe we were at the fabric market the same day… I was so impressed, and it was so hard to choose fabric, so I was in heaven… You never know, maybe next time we’ll meet, that would be fun! :)

      Thanks Mary! Maybe you can change something, add another color at the V-neck etc., so you can be happy with it :)
