Burda 2/2013 #126: Raglan Gathered Top – Again

Here you can see handmadeby-Chris in her incarnation as Teacher_Chris in her natural habitat:


I’m wearing another version of the ubiquitous Burda raglan top (I blogged about my first version here) and a Burda pencil skirt. It’s a few years old, so I don’t remember the issue it came from.


This is school, so cue some flat shoes, the better to catch them ;-).

The corsage is one of the little craft projects Burda run in the front of their magazines. I have to say I really love it, almost irrationally so. I will try and get a few better pictures soon.


This is now my fourth version of the top, and the second with contrast sleeves. I had a few problems attaching the neckbinding as the two fabrics have different rates of stretch and so the neckline is a little wavy. But I decided to pretend this was an intentional fashion “thing” and nobody seemed to notice anyway.
