Karen, I agree with marciae, that is a very nice outfit. I have that pattern out on the table, considering whether I want to sew it next ... or ...? I can't decide! I don't think I would tie the sides, either, but it looks stylish with the long sides hanging loose. And I noticed the way that collar sits up against the neck and I know I will like it. I think it's a good one to use on a regular tee length top.
Marciae, that is a good idea to add pockets to the Linda! I'd really like to try the Jilly, but the Linda is instant gratification.
Time to get off the computer, make a decision and cut something out!
