Not a great photo! But a great pattern. It’s worth taking the time to line up the seams and unpick and redo if they don’t match. A very comfy, loose elegant top with the right fabric. This fabric was a scrap i picked up from the opshop (and it has a moth hole right in the front that i didn’t see until the end!!). It’s a bit daggy but has the right drape for the pattern.
I didn’t quite have enough so i omitted the extra fold piece that is supposed to attach to the sleeve and create a large cuff. And i cut bias tape from some lining fabric for the neckline.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
