I've been trying to catch up on sewing needed items to pull my "orphan" wardrobe together. My closet needs some serious fixing! I think some of you really know what I mean, you have pieces that nothing matches (orphans), or you just need to add some staple pieces, like white shirts or sweater, black skirt or slacks, I think you get the picture. So I'm going on a mission to try and update my wardrobe with things I really need. I'll still add in a "want" project every now and then, but the next few weeks will be devoted to those much needed pieces.
I just completed a white tee for work that will be a good staple for a lot of orphan skirts and slacks. I've made this pattern once before Burda 7828 and really liked it a lot! I'm sure I'll make it again too because it's really quick and easy to make. It's pretty true to size too, as I made a size 10 with no alterations at all. Some other reviews mentioned they shortened the ties, but I like the look of them long (it adds that little something, I think). It's truly a lovely pattern.
I used a white rayon Lycra from highendfabrics.com. I really like their knits! and because this is white, I can wear it with everything!
