I can't seem to find the pattern number. Is there one? What does the vest look like?

Yes, I would love to see a bigger photo - esp of the front detail that you did. This has been on my list since I tried on a RTW top with similar front detail and found it flattering.

I've been looking at this pattern and thinking about making it, and the directions seem like they wedge the pleat between layers of the shirring and then flatten it out so that the pleat is on top. Burda has such a unique way of doing things, which can be really exciting or really frustrating. It almost looks like the pleat would need buttons or beads to hold it flat over the ruching. I'm anxious to see the bigger picture if you are able to get it posted.

Flattering top.

I would love to see a bigger picture, maybe with you wearing it. I've had my eye on this top and would find it helpful to see it on an actual body. Your fabric color is very pretty.
