Made from Simplicity 2656 for my costuming class. The instructions were kind of a pain. They were either too complicated or skipped steps so this is not a pattern for beginners I would say. I also forgot to put in the piping until after the buttonholes were done (there are pockets underneath!) But I squeaked it in anyways. The pockets are lined with pink and white gingham with roses printed on it to make me smile.
Despite the problems I had, I love the way it came out.
