I wanted something easy to make and wearable to work. This was completed in about 2 days.
I used a basic cotton for this pattern. I resized it to fit me and shortened the arms (I had 2 yards of fabric, not enough for this pattern). I also stitched up the cleavage to make it appropriate for work. I also shortened it and used binding on the neck.
The only changes I would make would be to eliminate more bulk from the front (looks like you’re prego) and lengthen the back.
