Additional Notes

This paper pattern includes all pattern pieces and instructions with illustrations.

A quick sew with som great details fo such a simple garment.



The pattern is very well done! The center inset panel is the only tricky part, once you have that done, the rest is a breeze to sew. The pdf comes together well and there are plenty of marking to ensure accuracy when sewing the center panel as well as the pockets.
