This is the first prject of how to enlarge the pattern to my size.

I wanted to add long or half sleeves to the original pattern. However, when I did this, these additions destroyed the beautiful drape. So, I returned to the basic pattern, without sleeves.

I also changed the instructions for sewing around the shoulder seam. I stitched the front piece to cover the back piece shoulder hem so that the back piece shoulder hem did not show.

Material Notes

Synthetic knit


Garment Type

    Im not sure what you mean by the shoulder hem but it looks very well constructed all the same! Im dead impressed that you managed to photograph black clothing, with drape, and retain the detail too!
