Notes Fabric : medium to heavy weight crepe polyester knit in ivory and in camel colors. There is very very little stretch to it. The back of the fabric is smooth doesn’t need lining most probably.
I have to make the sleeves shorter because I don’t have enough fabric.
Alterations : I had to take in 13 cms in waist and 7 in hips ! Even having small amount of stretch in the fabric I think it is too large. I don’t understand why. For this reason as I was taking in, I also cut off the slit at the end because I had to take in in center back and i took in 1 cm at every seam on the skirt: even without a slit I can walk really free. Also the sleeves are wider in the reality than in the picture so I took the biceps in 3 cms. Otherwise nice and easy pattern.
