Kuala Lumpur, Ma...
I reduced 1 pleat of the sleeves because it was slightly wider that 1/2 of my 45" width fabric. I used a 13" length of elastic for the sleeve band but a 14" length would have been just right. Also adjusted the neckline higher by 2" and increased the shoulder seam by 1" towards the neck.
Used 2M of 45" width American cotton. Slightly more would make the cutting easier.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
