This is from Vogue 1175, which is a Donna Karan pattern. I thought it would be a challenge to make this pattern. Do not be put off by the ruffles or anything – it is really easy and all of the markings line up like a dream..HOORAY!!!!! Again, the fit was great too. I made this with two favourite things -orange and tartan. I would like to make it again in a less structured fabric and I would make the next version longer.
