I just got my hands on my first Burda World of Fashion magazine. I am so smitten! I love the fit, I don't think I will buy another pattern from the Big Four again! Here is one of the shirts I made. It is pattern 120 from the Jan. 09 issue. http://www.burdafashion.com/en/Magazines/Archives/120_Blouse_113_Skirt/1270777-1463237-1679401-1679408-1679569.html
The fabric I used turned out to be a bit more exciting than I anticipated so I threw some pearl snaps on it and now I have a new shirt to wear to honky tonk shows! yay for dancing!
Sleeves are long enough, I have a habit of pushing them up.
You can see the three almost-pintuck-like pleats here.
I'm still working on learning how to finish my garments. I just figured out how to finish a collar correctly but not until after I had already put it on the slacker way. My cuffs are done very nicely, though. In the second picture you can see I didn't finish my button facing correctly. What should I have done? At least there is no extra bulk there now and the fabric lays nice and flat.
