This is a wee bit of a rush job. Busy at work and it has been too darn hot to turn on the iron. I did want to have some fun with the Down Under challenge as that is where I am and I was thinking of coats and jackets and long pants and it all came to naught, so please excuse my messy kitchen as it was enough for me to put on a pair of jeans as it looked a bit weird with my much cooler challis skirt.
The pattern went together very easily. I overlocked all of the seams but did run a seam just for the extra strength. I have a little more work to do to finish off the hem and cuffs, but, considering I’ve never liked skivvy necklines (they feel all chokey), I don’t mind this at all.
