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
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
