I have also made this pattern recently and love it . although I will admit that marking dots and slashes is very important. I also made this in a cotton weight (batik) and enjoy the jacket look, but it would visually add several pounds to wear it as a shirt. I found the sleeves (lower arm area) extremely fitted and chose to add a little width. As always I was very pleased with the patten and have purchased the complete line.

Skymon stated that she would use the burrito techinque on the collor in the future and I would enjoy learning this techinque. Please advise. Thanks

Thanks for your reviews - I have the pattern altered and just need to cut it out. Debbie, the burrito technique is very simple and gives a much cleaner finish to the front band but it is hard to describe. I will attempt to capture it with my digital camera during construction and post on my site http://sewingbunny34.tripod.com/gigiswideworldofsewing
