I like the look of it but would make with a scoop neckline rather than a ginormous cowl

No, but I like the look of it 0_0 although I'm sure I could make a better job of pattern matching down the centre back seam :ninja:

I`ve downloaded it.  Now I`ve got to try to work out if I`ve got enough of the fabric I bought a couple of weeks ago to make it (and find the time to make it)

I've just bought it too.  I like the shape - it looks as though it fits well and then flares from just the right point for me - and it has lots of variants included (4 necklines, 3 sleeve lengths, several pocket styles) and, of course, the length and shape of the bottom have infinite options!

@Puzzler I do like handkerchief hems, but they are a pain in the neck if you want to wear a short coat over them.  They're also a pain to hem.  I might well straighten this one off at a suitable level.

I like that too, had the same thought BrendaP, about the pattern matching but if you look at it a while it does match up across the diagonal apart from that odd place where it doesn't. You'd have thought they might have chosen a different fabric for the shoot!.

That looks nice, I may have to buy it - but I hate sticking patterns together...

Wonder if it would lengthen to make a dress?  :thinking:

Well I’ve just bought it.   :rolleyes:  I don’t think it would be too difficult to lengthen, depending how much you needed to adjust.

I think one of the examples on the website had made it into a dress, albeit a very short one, and quite a few are wearing it with leggings!

I have bought it as well, only issue is that they assume because your bust chest measures 40in you are a C/D cup when in reality i am an A.
Looks easy enough to lengthen and i already have some fabric i can use.
Perhaps we need a Sandy Comp?
