This one I made by grading up a vintage pattern. It was quite a bugger to sew. The yoke and the sleeves are ONE PIECE!
I had to re-size the arms (bigger) and it took me a few days to realize I had to widen the shoulder dart and then I could add width to the sleeves!
There is horsehair braid in the bottom hem, a-la 1950s...
So if you ever run into a similar pattern, just IM me here and I can give ya instructions on how to enlarge the sleeves without making the yoke bigger
Don't cha just love the color combo?!
The front detail is quite nice.
I enjoy wearing it so much!
