A great pattern from the 6/2013 Burda magazine. I used supplex here. I made my normal Burda size 42 but graded to a 40 in the shoulder/neckline and a 44 below the waist. I really like the overall fit! The length is great as is, no extending the bodice like I often do with patterns to fit my 5’8" (1.75m) height. I excluded the sleeves and made bands for the neck and sleeves openings instead. I cut the strips 2.25" wide (5.2cm).
