Additional Notes

This PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with color photos.

I had difficulty with the darts, I assumed it was my mistake, but I noticed another reviewer also had difficulty with the darts. The arm opening is a little small, but I'm starting to notice that in other patterns as well so that's an adjustment I need to learn how to make for my body. I'm eager to make another version.

The only adjustment I had to make to the pattern was making the armholes a bit larger. I am small - busted but not petite so this is almost always an issue for me.

The pattern is very simple. I've never used bias tape before and a few more photos with those instructions would have been really helpful. I think I managed OK without :) thanks for a really cute pattern!
