I have beginner experience in sewing and wanted to expand my skills so taking on this pattern was pretty daunting at first. I made some tiny modifications here and there (pleated the sleeves to cut down on the puffiness) but all in all I stayed true to the pattern. I was pretty bummed when I tried it on and it fit terrible. The yolk doesn’t lay flat and the chest is huge, though it fits in the shoulders nicely. Any tips on alterations? I am proud of the workmanship but wish I could show it off.
cotton fabric (I think) once was a bedspread
The person who made the pattern I suppose.
