Added Jul 12, 2013
Hi:) This looks like an overall but it is seperate top and pants. I used tunic pattern 113 from burda issue 6/2009 (without the drapped pieces) for the top, which I made long enough and added a tunnel with elastic at the bottom: when it is worn the hem goes to the waist and the top has a soft bubble look. I finished the upper of the top with a doubled band. I also added a narrow strap which ties at the front connection point. For the pants I used as a pattern guide an old pair of rtw pants which I unstiched. I widened the pants downwards and finished them with a doubled band. It was a very easy and quick project. It is also very easy to wear, comfortable and makes me look slimmer. I have also made a shrug of the same fabric so the outfit can be worn in a more chilly weather as well, I just forgot to take photos of it:(
Thanks for looking!
