I loved this pattern when I saw it and immediately downloaded it. I love the blockiness and mod style
I chose navy and red – mainstays of my mod wardrobe. It only took a few hours and my only regret was that I used plain cotton for the bow not a soft crepe as reccomended. I also added darts at the front and back as I found it to be very sack like and I wanted it to show a little shape
Also a bonus is that if I add a cardigan its still appropriate for work!
