My 12/2011 #107, with V shaped modesty panel and hand-picked lapped zipper. I shortened it 5" (after lengthening the bodice 2.5" for my bust + FBA), applied a 1/2" swayback adjustment, and instead of the recommended stitch-and-trim-close hemming treatment, I used a baby hem.
This is my first time working with a BurdaStyle magazine pattern (or any sort of Burda pattern)! More information at my blog: http://sometimessewist.wordpress.com/2013/01/21/its-a-birthday-burda/
