I have sewn this pattern before and loved it, so I wrote a how to and will definitely reuse it again and again in different prints and colors. Although a plain color will accentuate the cut better, it works well with a print too. I can also picture it with a different color for the sleeves and lower front.
It is easier to make but looks sophisticated with the twist in the front and underlines the bust, fits beautifully and is very comfortable sewn in jersey. Can be made with or without sleeves and the back can have a V neckline just like in the front.
Burda and Starlims for sending me to Israel where I found the fabric
