London, United K...
Based on Burda 122B from the July 2011 magazine. I made a few alterations though:
1. Took a total of 5cm off the bodice which raised the waist ( because I wanted it to sit properly on the waist), and 5cm off the hem (because I am a shorty)
2. Seriously shortened the slit because I wanted to be able to wear it without a bra showing
3. Left off the pockets because I am lazy
4. Left off the arms bands also because I am lazy, and because I liked it better properly sleeveless
5. Finished with bias tape.
