My first complex human-size clothing project. My very first was a wrap skirt from a bedsheet, but it doesn’t count since it’s too big now anyway.
I haven’t altered anything from the pattern. I guess this is a sort of wearable muslin? Making it again, I’d add some at the bust (there’s just a couple of cms missing) and maybe take in at the front waist a bit. With that kind of fabric I’d also skip interfacing the collar, it just added too much stiffness.
