This one was the sleeveless version from Simplicity #4589. It was so easy, and I love the fit. I didn't have to do ANY altering at all, which hardly ever happens. The fabric was just some remnant found in an Op Shop (thrift store) so it worked out to cost less than $4 AU (which includes the bias tape, buttons, interfacing, thread etc). Looking forward to making the version with sleeves now Smiley

Yep, it was real easy! The most difficult parts were probably putting the bias tape on the underside of the sleeves, and remembering to make sure you left room for the yoke to be turned under when pinning the front and back pieces to it. Hopefully that will make sense if you get the pattern and start sewing it! Cheers.

Oooh, I think I have this pattern. I love how you did the embellishment, I had thoughts of something similar... now I have an urge to make it. Smiley
