This tailored black top looks so chic, but styling is the key, of course. Long leather gloves, a large-scale brooch, pearl earrings, burgundy lipstick - it's all about a strong, self-confident woman.
This look immediately resonated with me - if I was still working in an office environment I would make several looks from this collection. I love tailored styles and I am a big fan of black. Actually, I am lucky since back in Georgia (Caucasus), where I come from, black is a part of the cultural identity, and now, here, in New York I can comfortably wear black again.
So, it was just natural that I could match that chic Bottega Veneta look with this 3/4 sleeve top in the September issue of Burdastyle magazine.
As for the fabric, I will be using a woven (Amanda used a double-stretch wool). It is a beautiful wool from my stash, which I bought in Mood two years ago. I loved it so much that I got four yards, and now I am happy I did because I do want to make pants as well, but this is a when-I'll-have-time project.
