Pattern Review Burda Style 10/2009 #135B
When I saw this fabric I loved the colors. The swirly floral design reminded me of finger painting. (fabric is sold out)
I bought it without a definite pattern in mind. The first few patterns I chose didn't work out.
Finally I matched it to a pattern in October 2009 Burda. (see pattern photo above)
I stabilized the neckline so and it does not drape as loose as pictured. I adjusted the armhole and shoulder to get a tailored fit.
I tapered in the sleeve so I can push them up and expect them to stay up. I enjoy wearing this shirt. It has shimmer and shine without being too showy.
You did a great job Joanne!
