If you're curious about the fit of this pattern, I made a straight size 10 as usual and it fits well but not perfectly. That's fine for me but if you are picky about fit I definitely suggest you join the facebook group for the sewalong where there are tons of people helping each other with every aspect of the sewing process, but especially the fit. Gretchen herself is a member, too! My friend Bianca also made an amazing video series detailing her fitting and sewing process!
I think this pattern will be a real workhorse in many people's pattern collections; you really could have a closet full of these in different fabrics, prints, and maybe trims. I'll likely make at least one more version, but I do prefer a sleeved dress so I can wear a non-strapless bra and don't have to wear a cardigan to cover my shoulders!
What do you think, should I still make a crop jacket? or should I stick with my little cardigans? If I made a jacket, I could wear it with the skirt... Do you make sets of clothing out of the same fabric, or do you make one item per fabric selection?
ps: i do love a good skirt + crop top coord...
