Gisborne, New Ze...
This was the first vintage pattern i have tried. it was pretty straight forward except i had to increase the size and the buttoned flaps ended up further apart than on pattern pic. i also narrowed the skirt, as a-line doesn’t look that good on me, and lengthened it a bit so it sits just below my knees. I intended to make it for winter with long sleeves but i didn’t get quite enough fabric, so i wear it with a short cardigan. i really love the final outcome!
