I'm pretty happy with it, it did turn out like the picture. I hemmed the bottom up 3 1/2 inches and had to figure out the top back on my own (disappointed in the directions which ignored this entirely), but it was pretty much a no-brainer. If I were to make this again, I'd use a patterned fabric for the bottom part and a solid for the top, I think, for variety, and would press the zipper portion of the back on the top before assembling it to the bottom. Otherwise, it was an easy and enjoyable piece to make. I really like the gathers and the pleats on the front and back-gives it some shape.
Do you like it? (Please excuse my sloppy ironing job-not very good at it-and PALE self!)
