This is why I am going to buy the new Burdastyle Magazine as soon as it hits the shelves here. Can you imagine the colour possibilities? It would even look wonderful in just one colour, perhaps with some piping to emphasise the seams.
I also love the way the tech-drawing shows a zipper that goes all the way down. How about a zipper that opens two ways, so you can create a split in the back whenever you want or need to!
