Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I added width to the sleeve and then did a pleat instead of eased gathers. I also added about an inch to sleeve length since I added contrast trims. I cut the front center and added contrast panel that I embroidered .
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This is actually the third version. The first was a navy linen cotton blend. The second was a quilting cotton. I also have a fourth version in Irish linen and dress length in the works... Just needs hemming.
Conclusion: this is a very versatile easy pattern to sew and is a great basic that you can get very creative with. I see many, many more Scouts in my future!
