Based on a free pattern from Burda (I got it way before BWOF website was automatically redirected to BurdaStyle) – E 005 view A. Mods. removed the shoulder ties and ruched the shoulder seams instead.

Fabric is what’s left over from my “‘Not as I imagined’ top”:

Material Notes

dry knit, elastic (for the hip tie I connected the ties to a length of elastic)




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Casual, Classic

    Is there a way to get this pattern in english? I found it in German, I just want to double check before I download it and don’t understand any of the instructions.

    I love this shirt! It does look very comfortable!

      I’m pretty sure they promised to have an English instruction, but if they haven’t I wouldn’t have any idea.

      All I did was look at the photos and go from there. It was an easy construction, I reckon.

      But if you really want to get some kind of translation perhaps you can try to use Google Translate ( Just click on “translate a document” link at the bottom and you can browse to where you’ve saved the PDF of the instruction. It will do a translation for you. But be aware that this might not be an exact comprehendable translation (as I usually find translation engines to be a bit weird most of the time). Good luck!
