I made this jumper using Burda 9/2012’s knit top pattern 106A. The fabric used is a double faced knit with pink pique on one side and ivory jersey on the other. The ivory side was used as contrast collar band. This is a fairly straight forward top to sew but some pattern alterations were required for me including reducing the top’s length and redrawing the shoulder darts. I also stretched the collar band like sewing a T-shirt as I want the collar to stay flat. You can see the making of the top on my blog:
