Remember back in February when I did a designer DIY on the Diane Von Furstenberg “Trelodie” blouse? Well this is an update from that post, taking the same pattern and totally transforming it into a top with a whole new look! While shopping around for our trip to Manhattan, I was having a hard time finding things I loved in the store so I ended making some pieces instead. For one of the days I wanted something that would transition well from day-to-night and I knew with a few modifications the Burda 7299 pattern would be perfect. This top was perfect for a lot of reasons: it was trendy with the houndstooth print and the studded shoulders, it was chiffon making it comfortable and easy to wear and it was perfect for daytime and out at night. During the day I paired it with black skinny jeans and a black cashmere wrap, and for nighttime I kept the skinny jeans and paired it with a fitted black blazer and my Burberry Gem Embellished Trench DIY. What made this even better was that with a few modifications to the original pattern and some shortcuts, this top was even easier to make and took a lot less time!
