Pleated black top with lace

Hi!! For this I used a pretty jersey fabric with a deep black color and a very nice drape. The pattern is burda 2/2008/119. I skipped the tie and added lace (which I pleated). I also made little pleats at the top instead of gathers.

    What am awesome top!! And so versatile. It looks awesome with the red pants as casual wear but I also think that it would look great with a blazer and a skirt for a more formal/business look. The lace and the pleats are a great chic combo in this top. Absolutely beautiful!

    The pleats and lace are really nice touches.I never think of lace trim used in this way…but it is a good idea … this top can go anywhere. Thanks for sharing. :)

      Thanks for your kind comments dear friend, the top is very easy to wear because this fabric doesn’t winkle at all, not even during washing;)

    Oh that’s nice! Love the little pleats…and what a nice contrast with the pants! What color are they – they look salmon to me, but several of the gals have referred to them as red. You will get much wear from this little black top!

      I think that I will wear it a lot, it’s black and needs no ironing what more to ask? The pants are red:) Thank you very much for the always kind comments my friend!

    Pretty top! I like your version more than the original one. And it suit well with your red pants:)

    Supercute! I have thought about making this top and am glad to see your altered version. It gives the top a very different look, a bit more wearable, easier to combine I think. I like your combination with the red pants too.

      Thank you very much for your lovely comments sweet frederi! This pattern is really super nice (and super fast to make) and it is really very wearable depending on the fabric.
