My first garment with sleeves. I thought it would be great for summer. I also added the elastic to go all around. The sleeves were shortened to go just above the wrist. The bias binding on the neckline I made from some elastic cotton fabric scraps.
For future versions, I would change the neckline (to either V or rounded) and do away with the front center seam.
I will also need to add a little more ease to the back piece.
I would also recommend to leave slits in the side seams, for better comfort.
Cotton with embroidery border. Elastic band (0,5 cm).
