It is still mostly warm enough to wear summer things during the day, though a warmer layer does get added when we venture out.
I made BurdaStyle 07/2018/119 a while ago and it fit the bill as an almost T-shirt with a slightly less casual bent. I like the relaxed raglan fit, sleeve ties, wider neckline and the deep back, though it definitely needs shoulder thread loops to keep it from slipping off.
The blue version has a higher back neckline which means it is perhaps a little less elegant but saves my dignity somewhat as there are no snaps to forget to undo before trying to take it off.
Both fabrics are from my stash – the purple is modal I think and I don’t know what other is. The blue has wee eyelets and embroidery all over and the colour is wonderful. It was sent to me very kindly by my lovely friend J. Thank you J xx
