Description

Well forgot about the original pattern i made plenty, too much modifications.
The fronts is in one piece, no sleeve at all, made a all in one facing (drafted by myself i was proud!), added back darts (my first time, on the upper back it’s not very pretty but well next time…), i even made a pocket! But ho everything turned fine (minus for the upper back darts but i’m not going to see it often by myself) even if it was time consuming!
It took me from very beginning to end around 20 hours well with time maybe i’ll be faster…
Oh i also tried “french seams” for the pocket (it’s fun “french seams” are called “english seams” in french)
I’m waiting for plain sunny days to non stop wear it!

Sorry for crappy dark, artificial light pictures as soon as i can i’ll upload better and more!
