I will make this one again. The fabric was very cheap at fabric land and the pattern has really easy, clear instructions. It seemed to come together really easily. I probably should have taken the bodice in a bit more, but I still think it fits ok…a relaxed look. This has a side invisible zip, side pockets and buttons for the front, so plenty of things to keep me concentrating! The bodice is lined and this bit is completed before adding the skirt section, so all very neat on the inside. Finished it last night and am wearing it this morning for work.
I don’t usually wear black, so I used orange buttons and orange gingham for the pockets, to add colour.
