This was so easy to put together. The pattern has pieces for woven fabrics and knit fabrics. I used the woven pattern and used flannel. The pattern pieces line up perfectly. The directions are written very well. I did make a change, because of my skill level. I did not make the circular yoke. And instead of the collar (which I love) I used ribbing around the neck line. I'll attempt the collar on the next one! I attach a photo so you can see the neckline with the ribbing. Great pattern, I love it!
haven't had time to use it yet But very cute!
