Inspired by a couple of other versions out there, I took a stab at making my own skinny cargoes. The starting pattern was Jalie 2908, but altered out of all recognition by this point.

There was a LOT of topstitching!

      The red shirt is Suzy Shier, actually (although I agree, it could totally have come from le chateau!)
