As soon as I saw this BurdaStyle pattern I knew I had to make it! I love the pleats near the neck and the cut near the armhole.
I did modify it slightly so that it was semi-fitted. I removed a lot from the side seams and added darts to the front.
Also the skirt in the pictures was a pattern from a BurdaStyle magazine as well, but I made the skirt so long ago, I cant remember which issue the pattern was from (an issue from around 2007-2008).
Cotton/polyester blend poplin, black contrasting buttons, yellow gutterman thread, iron on interfacing for the facings.
