I’ve been a collector of BurdaStyle Magazine for more years
than I would like to confess. It feels like a fantasy, expecting to sew every
design I fall in love with. I don’t think it’s possible to keep up with a
publication that delivers almost 30+ design monthly. Some issues are truly pitiful
while others are downright amazing. Today’s design comes from the May 2011
issue. It’s a simply yet detailed sleeveless top. It’s a shapely gathered soft
jersey T-shirt, with front gathering and twisted shoulder straps.
