My inspiration was this outfit from Garnet Hill .com
The pattern is from Burda Style from the November issue of 2008, # 118. It has a raglan sleeve with a curve which I really like.
I considered inserting a casing with elastic at the waist of the top but I changed my mind and decided to just leave it straight and wear it with a belt.
This outfit is perfect for my casual lifestyle but it`s casual with a little extra something, IMO! Except for the extra time it took while pinning to make sure the stripes matched in all the important places, this was an easy sew! I`m going to love wearing this together ....
or with various other bottoms like these yoga pants.
I also have a second Sandra Betzina jacket V1385 made but will wait until the dress I'm making to coordinate with it is finished before I show it. so please come back next week!
i hope you had time to sew this weekend!
