Looking forward to making another one, I specially like the placket!
I have several of Chris Saunders' patterns, and have just made the Bandana Blouse for Journey Girls today. Came out great! I lengthened the pattern to make it more of a dress or tunic to wear over leggings. Design is ingenious: one pattern piece, yippee! Clear instructions and photos to go along with them made sewing this both a breeze and a pleasure. Thanks to Chris and PixieFaire!
