Same pattern, take four! I eliminated the pockets for smooth side lines, raised both the back neckline and the front, quite a bit (Joan Halloway never reveals much skin!), added 3/4 length sleeves, and added vertical bust darts on the front, above the waistline. Because it is more form-fitting, I also added a center back zipper, to help get in and out.
I also lengthened and deepened the back darts, they are almost 11" in length, total, and I lifted the point of the dart 2" so that it would fall in the curve of my back.
This process of proper fit is never ending…
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
