No pictures yet, but I have made this and it is adorable. Easy to sew, too.

I do think that the lapped front works better if the inside piece is actually extended down and sewn into the bottom band. Urgh, that makes no sense. Hopefully you know what I mean.

My complaint about this pattern (which can't be helped) is that velour is a nap fabric, and the pattern pieces are all shaped somewhat like triangles. If it were possible to cut some out against the grain, it would use fabric very efficiently, but on a nap fabric like velour, there is TONS of waste. Oh well! The price we pay for style!

i lowered the collar a bit, made it with stretch velvet, neckline was a pita so next time i might interface it. but i love the look, i might lengthen it to a dress next time.
