Reggio Emilia, I...
I got for free this pattern, it’s exactly the kind of garment i’d wear every hour of every day…it was the hardest sewing work i ever made, but in the end i’m satisfied with the result. i made some changes in the sleeves ends, eliminating button holes and semplifying the cuff, also beacuse of the english instructions, translations are maybe the biggest part of my work when i follow them, so i often prefere to use fantasy ;)
checked light fabric with golden thread, it should be cotton..probably there’s some synth in it, it keeps you warmer than i thought when i bought it, but it des not stretch…i bought it at the town weekly market for 2 euros only!
