I've made this before using a woven fabric so I knew the cutting and sewing changes to make for this new version. The difference in this one, however, is that I used ribbon for the front band instead of a self fabric band. I used six 1/2" buttons for the front when normally I use five. I also put 1/2" shoulder pads in since I'm using it as a jacket instead of a cardigan. Finally, the ribbon band stands straight up at the back of the neckline, so I sewed a small dart on either side of the band to allow it to lay flat against my neckline.

Here are a few looks with the woven version of Burda 8869...
The other previous makes are The Flower Power Twinset and the gray/black/white knit cardigan ~ both work really well with these wardrobe pieces.
...as always, more later!
