I’ve had a heckuva time getting this pattern working for me. Not sure if it’s that I want it to fit differently than it was drafted to, or if it’s just not the right shape for my body… anyway, I think I finally have it mostly figured out. I lengthened the sleeves, went down to the size 32 (I usually make a Burda 36), shortened the waist, and shortened the armscye and sleeve-cap. I also lowered the neckline, which was its own fitting saga.
All that in the past, though, I am now super happy with this version of the pattern. It’s snug, close-fitting, and perfect for layering under anything to keep me warm since fall has very definitely arrived in my area (Pictured: layered under JJ blouse and Danielle dress). The best part is the super-long sleeves!
Blogged here with lots of talk about the fitting.
Unknown fibre knit, feels like a cotton or cotton-lycra though.
