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
