    Love the coat (and the shorter jacket version). Love the Shift dress as well. That’s certainly something I might be knocking up (after I check the differences between the pattern and the other shift dress patterns I already have including some original 60s ones, not that I’m already a shift dress person) But with a long sleeve roll neck and a chunky knit cardie it’s perfect everyday comfy wear.
