Additional Notes

This 50-page PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

It is a bit tight across my shoulders (fine everywhere else) and I used minimum seam allowance having sewn it up almost exclusively on the overlocker/serger. The next one I make (which I will as I like the pattern and it was very speedy to sew up (2 hours)) I will make slightly bigger in the shoulders and also from a fabric with a better drape for the cowl, which is very stiff - hopefully with a bit of washing it will soften.
