BurdaStyle Magazine - 07-2016-114 origami checkerboard blouse
Here is a quick white shirt, Burda's 'origami' shirt 07/2016 #114 that I used as a palate cleanser after quite a frustrating struggle with a linen jumpsuit. (More on the jumpsuit later.)

Burda Easy Fashion Magazine - 09-2014-3A zebra pieced zippered mini
This skirt has a lot of potential which went begging because my model doesn't show off the interesting piecing. But therein lies the risk.
