i love these two patterns from burda and have made a few variations on the top. this is one of them. i used faux leather and changed the neckline sleeves and the back. i put a little pleat down the back with .the same fabric i used for the skirt. i think it adds a nice touch and it was all i could come up with when i realised it was to small on my bust lol. theres no stretch in the faux leather x
heavy textured jersey and an a small chain for the back
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
