I find it hard to believe I've not reviewed this pattern, and delighted that it's still in print. It does take a fair amount of faith to put it together. It is a daft idea that works really well.

I did my usual: made it into an elastic waisted pullon with a pocket. Slashed the right-hand panel to add the pocket to the first version; pieced the pane lto add the pocket at the right hand on the second one. Shortened the pieces by 4" and 2" to make it ....not quite 2" shorter. Still puzzling over that one.

You want to make this, and you want to make it out of something soft that will appreciate some topstitching. It wants some weight to it (which means 1 1/4" nonroll elastic in the waistband). It's so cosy and fun to wear; it's one of my favorite clothes.
