Made this as part of my new years resolution – 52 Weeks of Sewing.
The pattern was awesome – thanks to Elegant Impressions! I’m 5 foot 9 and have a long torso so I ended up lengthening the torso 2.5 inches. I also added an invisible zipper in the side so that it’s a little easier to get on and off.
Was simple and quick – I’m a slow seamstress and it took me just one evening to make.
(Also, yes I know it’s not hemmed yet. Haven’t decided if I want to keep the length or make it a little shorter) :-)
