Loved this pattern when I first saw it and haven’t been disappointed.

I lengthened the bodice and sleeves as I usually have to due to a long body and long arms but otherwise it was true to size and no other adjustments were necessary. The back closure is with a hook and eye which ensures the neckline lays flat – wasn’t sure about that at first as I would have preferred a button and loop but it ended up being the best solution and stopped it being bulky at the centre back. Instructions were very comprehensive and detailed so made the whole sewing experience enjoyable.

I used a lovely crepe from Atelier Brunette which gave me the drapey blouson look I was aiming for – I’m really pleased with the result and will definitely make another.
