    My project won’t upload – is there another issue with bug tracking?

    If it is produced by Burda Style Magazine, I also expect a photo. I would never buy a pattern from a drawing. Is there a picture to add?

    Agree with Tiffany here; also would love to see this in 2 different block colors as I think it would be stunning!

    Would love to see this made up on someone before I decide if this look will flatter my body lol…the line drawings are great, but I like to see how they look made up

      I’ve made it up and am happy with how it hangs. Mine is halfway between size 10 and 12 and fits perfectly with no other ajustment besides cutting halfway between the lines for the two sizes
      I can’t figure out how to send a photo, if you want to put your email here I’ll send it.
