I made a wonderfully easy, and in my mind really cute wrap shirt this weekend.  I used Burda pattern 8122.  I used some polar fleece I bought over a year ago.  Since the fabric is a fairly stable knit I didn't need to reinforce the neck edge or the hem which was really nice.  Start to finish this only took a few hours (and as usual it was getting the pattern ready that took the most time).  My only complaint about this shirt is that the upper arm of the sleeves is a little tight, but other than that I love it so much I'm pretty sure I will be making more (as soon as I come across some nice knit fabric).

And a full length shot (why is it that the pic with the nicest view of the clothing is always the one with the goofiest look on your face?)

I can't believe it.  I was one second away from asking if anyone had made anything like this.  ADORABLE.  I can't believe that's polar fleece.  Of course, I have a baby and my experience with fleece is pink with little giraffes on it Cheesy

I'm going to check out that pattern FO' SHO'

Thanks everyone, I've already worn this twice, I like it so much. 

Arzu--is that a subtle hint that you would like one?
