I saw the cover of this pattern, and it was love at first sight!

I made this as a test muslin to check fit. I used Ponte knit from my stash.  This is a size 12 with no adjustments.

I really like the style and fit!  One small adjustment for the next time is to lower the bust dart about 1.5 inches.  I like the neckline, which is not only pretty, but bra-strap friendly.

This Silly picture is meant to show the front pocket and bust dart detail.  When sewn as instructed, the finished pockets are on the small side.

If you want a more functional pocket, i.e., warming hands or holding items, I would suggest drafting a single “kangaroo pouch” pocket.

 

There are some really cute options with this pattern, you can make it into a dress, change up the neckline, and add big sleeve cuffs.  Choose a great sweatshirt fleece or a fun double-knit!
