Very easy to make from pattern. Took about 3 hours, mostly done on the over-locker. I needed to read the instructions thoroughly as the pleating is a little difficult as the material is stretchy. The sleeve pattern was very long, probably meant to be for the design, but I didn’t like it on me, so reshaped a little so sleeves finished at my wrist. I am a good size 14, so the cowl and folds worked well for me.
I used a medium weight 2 way stretch jersey.
