Finally! It is about one and a half years ago that I was asked to contribute something to the first BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook and I was so thrilled! But we were not allowed to talk/post about it for such a long time now that it actually feels strange to finally show and tell. So this is my contribution – I changed a few things from the original pattern: I made the collar higher, used a zipper instead of the buttons, made a balloon shaped hem, widened the sleeves at the cuffs (bishop sleeves) and added that really wide belt. I have blogged about it and will write more about the changes I made, including lots of pictures of course. So if you are interested, please come visit me at Of Dreams and Seams
