Finally getting some sewing other then underwear done.
The pattern pieces print on only 16 pages – which is fantastic for PDF patterns.
I sewed up a size 3. From printing to having it sewn up it took about 2 hours. I waited and did the buttons the next day; my Brother sewing machine recently had it and I have been borrowing a friend’s cheapie Elna 21. I have bought a gorgeous vintage 1980 Bernina 801 – I am just waiting for it to get back from the shop. But all of that is another blog entry.
If I made it again I would change the pockets, they are very cute though. The buttons worked out fine – If I were to make it 100% reversible – easy to do as there are no exposed seams – I would sew buttons on both sides.
