I can't believe you made this. It's so nice and RTW. How long did it take you?

Cynthia: It only took 14 months! Actual sewing time was probably on the order of 3 Saturday afternoons -- I alternated between the serger for seams and the sewing machine for topstitching, so the detailing didn't add that much time. I lost a lot of time trying to smooth out the bust darts before covering them with pockets -- a thinner fabric or one without stretch (or a better seamster) would probably take less time. And the snaps took about an hour, including figuring out how to use the snap setting gizmo. I was hoping this pattern would stretch my sewing skills, and it did!
