San Diego, Calif...
These seem to be very popular right now, but I didn’t want to spend the money to buy one since I wasn’t sure it was something I would wear. So I made one from McCall’s 6362 (try not to be too alarmed by the pattern photos). I like it although I usually prefer to have my shoulders covered so I will probably wear it with a sweater like in the second photo.
Also, please pardon the photos. I was sans assistant.
I’m not great with types of fabric yet, so all I know is that it’s from Joann’s, is polyester, and was on sale.
