Description

Burda February 2012, model 117b.
Easy to sew and a joy to wear!
I omitted the tucks on the shoulders and used an invisible zipper instead of the exposed one.

    Great job and I love the color choice. Invisible zipper was definitly the way to go with the hig contrast of the yellow.

      Thanks! It is Acropolis on the hilltop, but the weather was not the best for photos.

      More or less – the Burda original is with yellow, while mine is actually lime. I prefer mine, to be honest, bright yellow so close to the face… I am not sure if I could pull it off.
      Thank you for you encouraging comment!
