I have New Look 6508 but I think the sleeves start too high up on the shoulders, so any suggestions of something better or advice on how to alter this would be very very welcome.

Neckline also needs changing and I need to add a waistband as well but I'm happy with those bits.

Also, there is absolutely no way the skirt is happening as pictured with the back zip running down the centre back pleat. I'm thinking three pleats (front and back) instead of four so the zip is nicely tucked between two.

So in summary: yes, I do have a pattern, but not one that doesn't need lots of stylistic changes!!
