Front Body - Japanese Linen Knit - Natural
Back Body - Japanese Linen Knit Brown
This fabric works really well with this pattern. The drape is just right. Also the very slight stretch helps the fit. Since the front body requires two layers of fabric, it is good to choose something light. This linen knit normally is semi-sheer, which works really well for this kind of construction (can choose lighter colour without worrying being see-through).
Pattern - Pros
As for the pattern, I like how the front body is constructed with two layers, which give a very nice finished look at the neck. The front layers at the side and shoulder seams are also completely encasing the back body that leave no exposed seams. I also like the shoulder straps giving a nice touch to the overall look.
Pattern - Cons
The neckline of this garment is too wide and low for my standard. I have to wear tank top underneath. I also don't like how the armhole band sort of "sticking out" instead of dropping down (the shoulder line isn't curved). I have made another version which I modified these two areas.
