      I have been collecting patterns, hitting the stores on 99 cent pattern day. This is one I picked up because there were very few pieces and it claimed it could be finished in an hour. The front drawings are not very attractive but I thought I could update it. Of course it sat in the pattern drawer for some time before I attempted it.

      The fabric is stretchy so I didn't need to bother with the zipper.

      I added pockets using in the How-To section on the Burda site. The sleeve fabric matches the pockets, which really only serves to please me. Oh, and that's a silver pin at near the neck. I was heading out to the grandparent's party.



      This the pattern envelope. It is not from a garage sale or thrift store. It was bought this year. Some of these seriously need a re-vamp.

I had thought of buying that same exact pattern.  Is it as fast and easy as the package makes it out to be?

Yeah. The pockets took a little more time. I was eternally paranoid that I would sew them to the outside and have to start over.
The pattern itself had very few pieces and it came together extremely quickly. Even the interfacing. I definitely recommend it to anyone. I am hoping that I can use that pattern and embellish and modify it to my heart's content.
