      i don’t know exactly cause i tend to work in steps, like each day i sew an hour. Maybe it took me about 4 hours , cause i needed to fit and adjust many many times :)

    looks great – especially the colour. I made this but my fabric was waaaaay too stretchy and it came out two sizes too big, even though I’d used the smallest size! But I’ll definitely make it again:)

      i don’t think the problem was your fabric, the pattern is just that big. mine also came out way to big. I’ll also make it again, just love to wear it!

      Glad to hear it wasn’t just me that had problems with the sizing- I saw on your blog that you suggest the size 36 would fit a size true-I gave mine to a size 40 friend!

    I was just looking at the pattern in the magazine thinking about how I’d like to make it. Love the color!
