the pattern is very easy. i used velvet, which can be slippery and difficult to cut accurately. the pattern is very forgiving in that respect. Even when my notches didn’t align perfectly, it wasn’t noticeable.
I used the ruffle bonus sleeve and it looks great. (photos coming). i added 2″ for an above the knee length hem. I’m 5″1′.
i chose the size based on my hip dimension (i’m an apple-shape) and the shoulders fit perfectly. i think if i had chosen based on bust size it would have been to big… not sure what that means just thought i’d include it.
i’ll definitely make it again.
