Hi! For the top I used the tunic pattern 113 from burda issue 6/2009 (without the drapped pieces). I finished the upper edge of the top with a doubled band. I also added wide straps and pleated them at the joining points. I love the cap sleeves effect that these straps create:) I also cut narrow and long pieces with various colors of the fabric to make something like fridge. For the skirt I used a simple pencil skirt pattern, eliminated the darts and just made a tunel with elastic at the waist. I finished the hem with a small pink doubled band (for this band I cut pink stripe of the same fabric). When I had finished the outfit I noticed that I had put the stripes mirrored at the skirt…grrrr….I’m never too experienced to make silly mistakes:(
Thanks for looking!
