This striped shirt for my girlfriend is from a pattern from the 01/10 Burda Style Magazine, which I unfortunately DO NOT HAVE. I keep seeing such cute pieces from that issue that I wish I had it!! I bought this pattern separately from the e-patterns that BurdaStyle uploads. The shirt has an appliqued square yoke cut on the contrasting grain, a mandarin collar, a back yoke with a classic center box pleat, long sleeves pleated (not a whole lot) into the band, and french cuffs. All the visible top-stitching is done in a very pale blue. The transparent buttons are also a very pale blue. All interior seams are french seams. There isn’t a single visible raw or even finished edge on the inside of this garment. I had a ton of fit issues with this pattern. I won’t go into them here; rather I’ll do a review of the pattern. It suffices to say that even making the smaller of the two sizes into which she falls, I had to take FOUR INCHES off each side of this blouse!! It also runs incredibly long. Make about two sizes smaller than you think you should. I’ll take some close-ups of the details after I wash and iron this shirt. She wore it on New Year’s Eve.
