This two piece can be found on page 33 of Burda 10/2010. I wanted to try a different colour fabric. It is still wool fabric, therefore a bit itchy when worn! It is great though in those windy, rainy British days. I worn this on St Patrick’s day and everybody was so impressed.
One small note, I could not find a green or blue petersham or grossgrain ribbon at the time, and I did not look very far. Decided to put ribbon instead, and it was a big mistake. I might replace that later. If you decide to make this, instead of creasing the front part, can I suggest organised pleats? They would look a lot nicer.
The set is wearable, although it was a learning project for me, and I would loads of things differently.
