I made a 36, cut the sleeves 1" longer, and raised the armhole by 3/8". I’m usually a 36 in Burda patterns, but this one turned out too wide for me. Next time I’d cut one smaller.

Material Notes

Teal wool jersey-preshrunk. I fused some stay tape to the shoulder seams.

    Thanks for the tip about the sizing! How much fabric did you use for the size 36?

    I really like the color you used. This turned out very nicely. I wasn’t sure if I really liked this pattern or not but after looking at your creation, I decided I definitely need to make one. This really reminds me of something you’d buy at anthropologie (which is my favorite store- so that’s a huge compliment)! It’s so pretty.

    Lovely color and drape. i just bought a similar fabric but plan on doing a long sleeve tee for me and if there’s enough fab, probably a tank for my sister for Christmas.

    I really like it! Is it somewhat adjustable with the belt? This pattern is next on my list of projects!
