    This is a very confusing pattern, I am trying to figure out how to do this but the directions are hard to understand. I could not find the cuffs or the tie on the pattern I downloaded. I am assuming I just have to make them my self. Which is fine but I think this may be hard for a newbie. I also will be changing the pattern a little it says to cut out two of everything, but this will be way to much fabric for the fabric I have chosen so I will have to make do with on layer of fabric. Make sure to use a very light weight fabric with this one.( and Im going to guess they did not use two layers in the pic above and that its not necessary.) I will also be changing the sleeves a little I think I will shorten them up a bit. I am making this for a work smock and I never use full sleeves.
