Progress Photo on Burda #129

My reading comprehension and Burda instructions are not seeing eye to eye. Therefore, it's taking a little longer than anticipated to complete this one. I hope the next one is better. This is my second Burda pattern I have ever done. I hope it gets better because this is a lot of work as far as I can see. My blouse is looking more like a vest because of the the fabric choice, but I still like it.

Burda/May Edition

I love the safari collection of the Burda May edition. Although, it is very time consuming to trace, mark, and cut out all the pieces and then cut out again on the fabric. This week I cut out the sleeveless top with the peplum waist. I haven't done the vest and skirt yet.
This one is my most favorite. This one is actually the first one I cut out this week. But, I still have to cut out all the loops(belt, pocket and shoulder loops!!!). The cutting out is driving me a little bananas! I can't wait to do this one. I bought fabric in the same color and will do a Burda skirt from the Oct 09 issue, which I have already cut out. Whew!!! I am very excited about getting this one done!!
