I used Stefanie Japel's Boobholder/Minisewater free pattern for this make. I had to enlarge it A LOT to fit me though, lol. This class really helped me adjust the pattern as I went. I will confess that it ended up a bit too big, lol. You can see how the collar edges ripples a bit and don't sit flat on my chest and the sleeves don't puff up because they don't hug my arms like they should. I also ended up having to create a big overlap at the button and add an additional button to secure it. In spite of that, I really do love it and I know it will be a great piece when it gets cool again. I also adore these buttons! I only had 2 of them and they match perfectly - it was just meant to be :) I'm sure I will use this pattern again!
