    113_top_crop_2__listing

    I made this top using Burda Style Pattern 113 from February 2013. The pattern has a great fit that accenuates curves, or in my case, creates a nice illusion of curves! Because of the folded fabric …

    Burda_1345_copy_listing

    I was attracted to this pair of pants (Pattern 122 November 2006) because they were designed with big pockets in mind. That said, however, I did change the shape of the pocket a bit and also extend…
