This pattern was very simple, easy and quick to make. The Burda instructions stumped me on the front slit facing but I found this tutorial which was extremely helpful. Otherwise, it was straight forward and came out looking like the pattern picture.
You can wear this type of shirt to work with a skirt or just casually over jeans. It's a baggy fit so no need to worry about it being too tight or clingy. Plus, the bow front makes it so girly and cute.
MaterialEach shirt was made with 100% Cotton.
Shirt ConstructionI think the pattern tells you to make the bow part really big. My bow was only half that width (18cm). I recommend checking the bow size and just making sure you are happy with that outcome before cutting it out.
After making the first one I also reduced the front slit facing from 23cm long to about 15cm long. I didn't think it needed to be that long as the shirt was a pretty baggy. Plus, you can get it over your head without the long front slit.
Finally, I also made the shirt a little bit longer so I could wear it over jeans. I found the first one I made was a little too short for my liking but that one I could wear with a high-waisted skirt.
