I made this shirt from patterned jersey from Mood in NYC. I love how it turned out! The instructions were a bit confusing, but overall, it was pretty easy. (Generally I am finding with any Burda pattern that even if it says “easy”, the instrux can be rather confusing. If you’re a newbie it’s necessary to have a sewing expert around who can help you decipher what the instructions are telling you). Basically, the whole shirt is a wrap, and the only thing holding everything together is the tie band. Depending on the fabric you choose, this top works well for casual, business, or a night out.
