I made this top, which ist not really a top from a burda pattern in 5/2011, it’s based on the dress 108B but only till the hips. I did not have enough fabric to make the whole dress. But I think half of it is quite nice as well. :-).
But: I hade quite a few problems with stretching the burda-pattern, which is printed in the magazine as a short-size, to a normal one. But after a lot of ripping and alternating it worked. To complete the look I made the “bow-belt” from Tilly.
