Finally got around to posting this! It’s been a couple of weeks (sorry Aunt Jenn!)
This pattern overall was really great. I liked it, and it was fairly simple to follow. The only thing I wish I would have done differently was to take into account my height. I’m only 5’1 at the most, and the pattern had allotted areas to adjust height. In my excitement, I ignored these. Still, it turned out quite nicely. I found the “Blue China” looking fabric (cotton) at Joann’s Fabrics, and I really like the look.
Oh and in some of the pictures the zipper tab is up in the back, sorry. Haha
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
