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….
Also on my blog here , with a review of this pattern
The pants are Burda 7863, made of khaki stretch gabardine
