This top is made of a very beautiful suede fabric. It is based on pattern 106 from burda magazine 09/2012. I really love the silhouete that pattern creates, especially on the shoulders and armholes. I widened the neckline and added a rolled collar ( made of a rectangle of fabric cut on the bias) to make it more interesting. I’ m not absolutely satisfied with the result, but it’s wearable. I also made long sleeves instead of 3/4, maybe I will shorten them later. The skirt is based on pattern 111 from Burda 2/2008. I hope you like it!
