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…
