Made using Burdastyle magazine 10/2010, pattern number 102, of a lightweight slightly fluffy brushed cotton mix. Love the floaty, drape-y shape of this pattern, and also that it still looks a little mannish. My own touch; I curved the top edge of the sleeve cuffs, and added two buttons and buttonholes, sewn perpendicular to each other.
This is really taking me back to my Spandau Ballet phase….
