This top is made from some interesting Japanese cotton (from tessuti again), and it’s a Vogue DKNY-Burda hybrid. The front and back are shortened from a Vogue DKNY dress pattern (#1013), and the sleeves are based on pattern 129 from the 09/2009 Burda magazine (adjusted up from petite size, and extra pleats folded in). This has proven to be a bit of a wardrobe staple… and I now have some photos in which I’m wearing the top so you can see how it looks on. A bit overcast at the time so the colours are dull…

    Oh, the sleeves look so good on you, very avant garde!

      Thanks, I’ve been pretty happy with them – the fabric has quite a bit of body so the sleeves keep their shape and “puff” well. I just wish my arms were a tad slimmer in there!

    I would love to see it on you, it’s hard to imagine the fit on the hanger. The sleeves look great though, and I love the fabric!

      OK – done. I got my mum to take some pictures for me this evening. They’re a bit washed out…
