Jane OverShirt - StyleArc

Pattern Description: Over shirt with side splits – great over jeans or leggings. Either button to the neck or leave open. Short sleeve & ¾ sleeves available.

Pattern Sizing: 6 - 8 - 10 - 12 - 14 - 16 – 18 – 20 – 22 – 24 (mine is a 14) you choose one size only, so choose carefully

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it does.

Were the instructions easy to follow? No - as already stated in my other reviews, the instructions are frustrating.

But, I learnt so much, this is my first shirt, first collar, first yoke etc, and I am pleased that I ended up working it out. Luckily I had my sewing teachers help for one week, but then I finished it off myself.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It fit nicely with no alterations whatsoever.

I would wear it open with a cami underneath, too cold to wear yet, but I will with white pants.

Fabric Used: Embroidered Cotton from Spotlight

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No size alterations - but I couldnt work out how to do the splits on the sleeves, so I left them out.
