This pattern is from the 10/2009 issue of Burda. It was a quick and easy project, and it’s totally in line with my recent passion for feminine shapes and details rendered in menswear fabrics. The pattern is quite nifty, with a pleated panel down the front. The pleats are stitched from the neck to the high hip, and then swing free afterwards. The construction reminds me a little bit of a 10/2007 pattern from Burda, which I also made and like quite a bit. The pattern comes in sizes 34-42, and as usual I graded down to a 32, and shortened it some at the hem.
