Pattern Review Vogue 2624 (out of print)
The fabric was very easy to sew-no nap-and I didn't worry about matching the print. In fact, I used the reverse side for the front facing just for added interest. The side opening pockets were fun to construct.
Pattern alterations: I did increase the size of the sleeves-this is a modified kimono sleeve so I had to allow for my large upper arms and the area around the elbows for movement and tapered it back to the wrist.
Interfacing: I used medium weight woven fusible just for the collar and front opening.
Lining: I used the cotton batiste in turquoise (sold out) from Sew Much Fabric. There are no buttons.
