Another Burda Wrap Top

Burda World of Fashion January 2008, # 116

I don’t have anything more to say about this top than the first time around, really, so the pictures will do the talking. I have a feeling this top will be getting a lot of wear!

(Apologies for the pictures’ blurriness… The sun was about to set.)

The cotton knit is a souvenir from Amsterdam. The skirt dates from before my sewing years; it is one of the very rare ready-to-wear clothes I still wear, because I just love the details in it.
(No, I don’t care it’s out of fashion. I wear what makes me feel cute, full stop.)

I realized this week that I could totally wear skirts despite the cold, if I layered nylon and woolen tights. So, I’ve been wearing skirts all week, and a skirt is next on my must-sew list.
This skirt is just the same length as my silver lining coat, which means it acts as a petticoat under it. Let me tell you, I love the feeling!

    Although I always love the photos of the clothing, the view of you with your cute kitty is my favorite photo! I too could wear skirts all the time, if my job would allow it. Not so easy to do gymnastics in a skirt!!

    The wrap top ist so cute and the skirt is great with it. I really don’t care about fashion when it comes to skirts. I really have the feeling that skirts are classics no matter the style!

    I have a very similar skirt, also store bought. It is now too big for me, but I plan to alter it (I hate altering) to fit. It is absolutely my favorite and I plan to make a couple in the same style for this summer! The BWOF top looks great with it.
