I had a pretty hard time with the pattern…I am not that experienced at reading patterns so I spent many an hour figuring out how to piece this one together! Probably the most challenging thing I have made yet. I put the snaps on it to start but felt something was missing so I decided to add the fabric covered buttons. I like it much better and am pretty pleased with the results…it is more of a jacket that a wrap or shirt. Good weight for spring…
