I downloaded this pdf pattern and immediately saw that it would have been pretty easy to draft this myself. Basically a long rectangle, tapered slightly on the sides for a little shape. Nonetheless I’m pleased that it turned out pretty true to their photo.
The lightweight polyester I used was a little maddening and the pleats took a little playing with, but otherwise a very simple pattern for a look that’s a little different. I cut the 38 but didn’t have enough fabric to add seam allowance to the neck or sleeves. The neck JUST fits over my head, I like the width and shape of it but might cut it down slightly next time. The pleats fall over the shoulders/ arms nicely and I like how it wears. I did french seams to deal with the fray-crazy poly and rolled hems on the neck, sleeves and hem.
Would recommend and will definitely make again.
