I’ve been wanting to try out this pattern ever since I saw it on Burda 03/07 (it’s pattern nr 103 B). It’s actually sort of a tunic, and I immediately liked the contrast effect of the bands on the neckline and waist.

The fabric is one of my favorites, it came from Barcelona’s Nunoya and I knew I had to make something special I could wear with it.

Adjustments I had to make: added another zipper on the side (or it would be very hard to make it pass through my shoulders) and closed the folds on the front, sewing them together.

    How did you get the pattern? Was it only available in March 2007 on the Burda site? I love this top and would love to make it! Thanks!
