Added Nov 13, 2012
The only changes I made were to lengthen the sleeves to full length (although they are still about 1/2 an inch too short really) and sew the front opening up to about halfway, so as not to expose my underwear to all and sundry. I also lowered the neck about an inch at the front. If I was to make this again, and I might because it’s so comfortable, I’d lower the neck even further.
The pattern calls for hooks and eyes to close the front, but I did small square mother of pearl buttons and hand stitched button loops.
