It looks lovely in the photo. So sorry it didn't work for you.

Thanks for doing this review. It's good to know that a pattern might be easier than it looks and have some good details to it even when the poster found the style not to a personal best. Glad you were able to take something useful (elbow darts) away from this experience.

All is not lost; at least you wrote a hilarious review and amused us as well as being forward thinking on Halloween.

Thanks for the laughs - Lt. Uhuru!!!! It is good, tho', to look at every project as a learning experience - I've had many of those!

I thoroughly enjoyed your review Lieutenant! Too bad about the top because it looks good from my computer.

thank you for your comments & sense of humor! A taller friend w/ a long waist & diff skin tone tried it on, looked great in color & instantly 10 lbs slimmer! @eleanorsews I have a jkt w/ elbow darts & always thought, why don't they use these, & things like under arm gussets etc more in rtw today.
