    The instructions are great but on the pattern itself the markings are in german so i didnt understand where the armholes and the necklines were supposed to go.

    Your Neon Twister pattern is great! I like fabric manipulation and non-traditional things. I downloaded it and will try to make a shirt for disco dancing. Keep up the good work! Alles gute Bob

      I know neither the author nor the book, what do you call.
      But there are many techniques and books on how to construct twisted. There are also wonderful book entitled "Pattern Magic ".

    So lovely! Can’t decide whose version I like more – yours or immi’s. Both are so nice, and I like the symbolics of your simultaneous posts to BurdaStyle :).

      Thank you!
      something other than Vintage:-))
      It was a completely spontaneous act!
      The dress is so easy and so effective.
      We both knew that we want.

      oh yes!
      I’ve fallen into the fabric.
      When I saw the fabric – I wanted it.
      and I knew this fabric is perfect for this dress.
