This time I will make a few alterations, mostly to the front pockets. I found that sometimes the pocket lining would show. This time I will make some simple changes to resolve that issue.
When I came home from work I was not tired so I made notations and pinned down a few pattern pieces. Then I decided to make some changes, but I had to stop when Dot wanted to play too and got right in the way. Now I am too tired to work on it any more tonight so I will leave it on the cutting table to work on again tomorrow evening.
As I sew these up I am going to write instructions with photographs so this will ultimately result in a how to/sew along kind of project, but for now I will share just this one photograph.

Extended sense of "decorative design" first recorded 1580s, from earlier sense of a "patron" as a model to be imitated. The difference in form and sense between patron and pattern wasn't firm till 1700s. Meaning "model or design in dressmaking" (especially one of paper) is first recorded 1792, in Jane Austen.
