Absolutely unique pattern. This pattern has a fantastic opening which allows a back detail I've never seen before. Although the pattern is described as "Intermediate", I found it a fairly easy sew because of the excellent instructions and well drawn pattern. It turned out really nicely.

This pattern really makes a one-of-a kind outfit. Oh, and great instructions for a side placket closing.
