Burda Young 7146: Tops

As you know I live in Florida.  I just can't bring myself to make or even buy a coat.  We have such sporadic and short winters, I find they just hang in my closet for years until I give them away.  So for at least the past 6 years I have not owned an overcoat.  I usually just layer, and or wear hoodies and zipper jackets.  I do own a Michael Kors leather jacket that I absolutely love. 

At first glance of this pattern, I thought, well its on sale, but I doubt if I sew anything from it.  Of course I see Burda Young and I think about teenagers.  But after this weekends cold snap where we got down into the low 40's, I decided I needed to revisit and try View "A".  Its perfect for layering, and just cute enough to wear casually with my boots and leggings.  

Here goes:

The pattern was super simple and didn't even have to pay much attention to instructions.  Burda and I have a love hate relationship, so I usually just review the instructions then toss them to the side and do my thing.  That's exactly what I did here.  It came together nicely and I can't wait to style if for you guys, so stay tuned. 

Happy Sewing!
