Description

Finally Burda had some sportswear patterns!
I was a little bit unsure about the centerfront piece, but after checked about other memeber projeckts, the pattern/model turned to to be very nice! I certainly will use the pattern again!

I used light thick cotton jersey and lightweight black scuba for cuffs. I managet to sew thumb-loops to cuffs. I left the other zipper off and used only one at the left side of the collar. I added loop of black scuba uner the zipper to use it more easily and to give some details. Ribbons are still missing. I need to wait over the midsummer holidays to visit local hardwarestore Bauhaus, where is the best looking ribbons to use with sewingprojeckts.

I used size 38, but it´s bossible to take a few centimetre off. Next I’ll might try some windbreaker fabric with this pattern.

Material Notes

Cotton jersey, lightweighr scuba.

    That is really great idea, and you look really great in this. That seems like a great base for every girl to have. I will do my essay today on this creative idea.

    This looks wonderful! Did you have an issue with sizing? The sizes seem to be off with this pattern.

      Thank you!
      I was a little bit unsure about size, only because my body has been changed a lot = I have been doing weight lifting training at the gym for policeacademy. I have been size 34-36, but now it´s closer to size 38.
      I desided to use size 38 pattern, but I think 36 could have been also great, especially if the fabric hade been more elastic.
