This pattern is great because it hides any bulges and rolls that might have accumulated over the winter months and provides a cool outfit for the hot summer days. The first attempt was using a dense polyester fabric trimmed with a 1950's retro pattern accent. Wasn't happy with the neck line, I changed it slightly on my next attempt.
Attempt number 2 was a plum linen that was a big hit although I wasn't happy with the size of the arm holes, they were too big. Must be changed next time around.
Attempt 3 I used a wool jersey and cut up a jacket I no longer wore for the accent pieces. I also added cap sleeves to this version.
The next attempt I used a mixture of linen and a technical supplex fabric. I changed the top of the pattern to make it longer and wearable with just tights.
