Jersey laurel is completed

Well I have finally complete the jersey laurel, a very popular Colette pattern that has seen so many adaptations. My version has long sleeves with bias binding neck line and sleeves. I opted out of pockets and make quiet a short style tunic. I found the pattern had very generous sizing and I had to take the sides in. This would normally annoy me but I find the beauty of a Colette pattern enables you to make alterations with ease. Being jersey I didn't bother with a zip so an easy make this was. I did enjoy this make, and I am glad I have something to go towards my fall essential sew along, Make yourself cosy! How's everyone else coming along with their autumn sewing, are you like me just great full you have manages to make anything?
