Slouchy. I believe you could use the same zipper technique under the sleeves. I've not used adventure fabrics for these shirts but plan to do so on my next try.

Love your idea & all those wonderful hints with photos - I have been hunting for a travel shirt pattern. All the RTW brands presume outdoor activities are the realm of small builds! Not being demanding, but what I would also love are zippable vents (from sideseam to midsleeve) revealing vented gussets under the sleeves - haven't found those yet! But I'll try your hint, but add a tab so sleeves can roll up! Adore the colour! Am interested in your feedback re: adventure fabrics :)

I love what you did with this pattern and as I already have it, I will be borrowing your idea of a shirt/jacket with vents and zippered pockets. brilliant!

Deesews, I'm not an expert on sway-back adjustments, but wish I was. Actually the best info is on the PR Message Board. Just search for "sway back". Good luck

I have this pattern in my stash with fabric picked out for it. Now I see how attractive you look in it, I'm really happy I have this pattern. Love the pink too! Thanks for your review.

Andrea and Betsey, Jomar's is a liquidator in Philadelphia. They have about 3 or 4 stores of "hit and miss" but inexpensive fabric.

Love it! The back yoke flap is a nice addition. Great color supplex. Do you recall where you purchased the supplex?

That is super nice! I love the features included, and the color. I bought 2 of these type of shirts a few years ago and paid $85.00 each! Yours is cuter. :-)
