Chicago, United ...
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.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
