At first glance, it’s boring. But take another look. Think Jackie Kennedy. Think Michelle Obama. Add a necklace with fake pearls the size of bottle caps. Add a vintage ‘80s Donna Karan wide black belt. Or wear it plain and simple and unbelted for optimum ventilation on sweltering summer days.

So, yep, you’ve put two and two together and come up with four. This is another possibility for my beginner’s garment. The pattern envelope promises quick ‘n easy. Do you think that applies to wannabe dressmakers or to those with Claire Shaeffer-level stitching skills?
