I made this from the pattern and instructions in Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing. The instructions made it so easy, even for a beginner like me! I took 0.5cm off the neckline before adding the collar as it seemed very small. I’m glad I did as it is still a touch tighter than I would like. I love the effect of the buttons down the back and am definitely going to use the pattern again.
