This was a very quick and easy make using the Burda striped top pattern 108A. The kimono sleeve design means there are only two pattern pieces which create a lovely chevron effect on the sleeves. I used a black and white striped jersey and finished the neck with red bias binding for a pop of colour. The speed with which this came together means I’ll be making lots more versions!
