This top is based on pattern #130 from the 07/2013 Burda Magazine
As you can see, I used this pattern for my “I believe I can fly” top. However, I made 3 changes from the original pattern: I extended the sleeves, made the collar wider and… Added wings to the shoulders!!! The wings truly give a different style to this top.
About the fabric: I chose to use a liberty London fabric for my “I believe I can fly” top.
1m70: is the amount of fabric I used.
About the realization: pretty simple! I however asked a friend of mine who is a pattern maker to help me design the wings. It was kind of fun to try to determine the exact dimension to give to the wings, as once pleated it could be tricky. Anyway… it was not super relaxing especially as I had to be very serious in the cutting in order to avoid messing up with my expensive fabric
