My wardrobe needed a vivid infusion of color, so this finely textured multicolor boucl helped me to create a classical look with trendy appeal. The pattern is from Burda style 2/2013_106 with some adjustments.
Before cutting my fashion fabric I measured the pattern and found out that it’s quite loose and as I prefer more fitted style I modified it accordingly. Also I lengthen the sleeves as I’m not particularly into three-quarter length.
I learned a lot while making this garment and added a couture touch: fabric covered snaps. This is a great technique that is used in couture sewing to disguise metal snaps.
