Based on Butterick 5724 with some alterations. I made this for my fiance as a gift for st valentine’s day.
I love the double thickness on the front part and the edge of the sleeves even if you have to use much more fabric. Sizes are a bit “generous” and the sleeves turned up a bit long even for a tall guy, so I had to shorten them.
A very easy project for novice sewers like me, it gives me a lot of satisfaction as I know it will be used every day!
