How I wish I had read the other reviews first! This turned pattern out to be enormous and I ended up taking in the seams. The worst problem though was that I couldn't get the yoke to meet with the underarm. The underarm (with bias tape) was bigger than the yoke. There is also a lot of handstitching to be done.

I did however enjoy getting creative with ribbons and lace!

This is my first project with my brand new machine - an Elna 5200. I am enjoying it mostly but I do find it far more noisy than I expected.
