Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
none. i just re-drew the sizing based on my moulage.
it’s obviously retro and still a classic, i bet it is great for all kinds of fabric. this one will be sticking around. the construction was simple and breezy, with a fold-over facing and easy-to-attach collar.
gotta go get ready for my date with archie goodwin now….
