    I made this initially as a sample to see if I needed to tweak the pattern to suit my body size and shape. This pattern is a little odd… It curves in at the waist to make it billowy in my middle, which is definitely not the shape I’m going for. I’ve re-drafted the pattern to make it longer (more like a tunic), and lengthened the top at the shoulders. My idea is to belt it at the waist to create some shape. I am a size 22 (US sizes) and 6’ 0" tall. Hope my notes help future sewists!
