The only alteration I made to this was the length. I lengthened it by a good 4 inches, mainly because I'm so tall and I wanted to be able to wear it tucked in. I love Andrea's (Four Square Walls) white version so opted for a shameful copy. I figured it would make a great wear for work. The fabric is a medium cotton.
You can get an idea of the length here. I'm wearing it with my Grainline Moss skirt too!
I initially put the pleat in my muslin the wrong way around on the back (oops) and after reading around blogs I realised just before starting this one! Phew!
I love the detail of the top stitching. It was my first time with top stitch, I had a few "moments" when my machine kept jamming on the collar but with a little help from twitter I changed the needle to a denim and messed about with the tension. I'm not thrilled with the finish under the collar as I couldn't get the tension right but it can't be seen so I can get away with it!
I'm amazed at how easy it was to make. The Sew Along certainly helped, to be honest I mainly used that as I'm more of a visual learner and prefer pictures but the pattern instructions were pretty straight forward too.
Here's how I usually wear it. Overall a huge sewing success!
