This pattern is Burda Style 7253. I've never used a Burda pattern (other than the ones in the magazine). I haven't really taken a look at it yet, but it will be interesting to see if the directions are any less sketchy than the ones in the magazines.
When I bought it a few weeks ago, I also bought this one:
|Burda Style 7255|

Here are the blouse and the line drawings:
I think that deep inverted pleat in the back is really interesting!
Have any of you ever used a Burda Style pattern? What's the verdict?
