Top was made according to instructions from Pattern Magic book: Draped design (page 62).
Instructions from the book are relly nicely presented here: http://ancien-nouveau.blogspot.com/2009/11/pattern-magic-vol-1-draped-top-p59-60.html
in case you would like to do this pattern as well.
I have added sleeves to give it a more finished look.
However, even though I have used the pattern for my size (Eu 38) from Burda, top is very tight on me; I will give it to a friend as a gift. Next garment prepared with this design I will make one size bigger than mine.
I have used 1.5m of linien, 20 cm zip and cotton tape for finishing the eadges.
