Finally Burda had some sportswear patterns!
I was a little bit unsure about the centerfront piece, but after checked about other memeber projeckts, the pattern/model turned to to be very nice! I certainly will use the pattern again!

I used light thick cotton jersey and lightweight black scuba for cuffs. I managet to sew thumb-loops to cuffs. I left the other zipper off and used only one at the left side of the collar. I added loop of black scuba uner the zipper to use it more easily and to give some details. Ribbons are still missing. I need to wait over the midsummer holidays to visit local hardwarestore Bauhaus, where is the best looking ribbons to use with sewingprojeckts.

I used size 38, but it´s bossible to take a few centimetre off. Next I’ll might try some windbreaker fabric with this pattern.

    That is really great idea, and you look really great in this. That seems like a great base for every girl to have. I will do my essay today on this creative idea.

    This looks wonderful! Did you have an issue with sizing? The sizes seem to be off with this pattern.

      Thank you!
      I was a little bit unsure about size, only because my body has been changed a lot = I have been doing weight lifting training at the gym for policeacademy. I have been size 34-36, but now it´s closer to size 38.
      I desided to use size 38 pattern, but I think 36 could have been also great, especially if the fabric hade been more elastic.
