I was just looking at that Burda pattern not five minutes ago, wondering what it would look like in reality - I love it! Great job!
It's obvious that I'm going to have to make a few of these.
You said the top is too big - is that an issue of the pattern running big, or not having the correct measurements, or something else?
The pattern runs a bit big, and the neck is SUPER low. You may want to adjust that before cutting it out. Also, Burda doesnt include seam allowances in their free patterns, so make sure you add those!
