Burda 08/2009 is the best number ever. After making a t-shirt and a dress, now I used these two patterns. I used the exact pattern for the blouse and shortened the pants.


Summer, Spring
Casual, Romantic

    I love the fabric in your blouse, great job. Where can I get similar fabric? I also love the dress you extended from the blouse pattern.

    I love your top enough to hunt down that issue of burda mag and make this for myself. And that mag is hard to come by where I come from! Gorgeous!

      Oh, and I’d be wanting to send you something in return – can’t have this being one sided. Some fabric I think? :)
