Burda described this as "tunic". It also has a companion pattern as a dress.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were very simple and straight-forward. This was one of the patterns that Burda is starting to include with instructions, so any questions or confusions were clarified by the diagrams accompanying their instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It was a loose-fitting garment with the contrasting neck yoke.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I changed the sleeve pattern, and, quite frankly, regret it. I wanted a bell shaped sleeve and so substituted a close-fitting sleeve from another pattern. It doesn't really work because it needs more ease around the bicep. However, I am stuck with it because I don't have anymore fabric! I like the bell silhouette however.
I left off the contrast band at the cuffs - no need in my print! The only other change I made was to embellish the yoke. I made this as a swimsuit cover-up and wanted something fun along the neck edge. You can see the details of it here.
I also did my standard 1" FBA to ensure the front hung straight, and now out and away from me!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I may make this up again. The pattern is very loose and tunic-y - a silhouette that I have not really been comfortable wearing because I am rather busty. I have a mental picture that tunics look better on less-endowed persons. However, my FBA made the fabric fall properly, so I'm toying with the idea of making this up in a silk crepe.
A great loose-fitting tunic top with a lot of possibility for customization!
