My first stab at a pattern from the Burda magazine. I had some issues with the fit, mostly to do with the shoulder seam angling to the back, which I guess (looking at the pattern line drawing) is a design feature. Presumably I missed that when I was tracing it out ;). It also turned out pretty small, maybe because the fabric I used was very heavy. It turned out cute in the end, however. I omitted the pockets.
Blogged in great and whiny detail here
