As you can see I have added a piece before the armhole. I have done this because of a technical difficulty, and have made it into an extra design.

I added was the ‘H’ on the sleeves. I thought of this idea during toile development and glad I did. I feel that my toile was too boring/simple for the project at first ,but this feature made my toile better: First I traced the sleeve block and added the ‘H’ on the bottom. I then numbered all the blocks and traced them separately. Once I traced them , I added a seam allowance to all. I made number 4 a pocket feature :

Opened back and front-No finishing just hemmed.

I am very proud with my final toile. Although I had many difficulties during the toile developement for example started from scratch: I traced a shirt mens block on calico then put it on the stand and added pleats. When I added pleats, it took off the arm hole which I didn’t think about when adding pleats, so I have to add an extra piece. Having difficulties and fixing/accomplishing my final toile is an amazing feeling. I did not believe I could do it alone, but I did.

Final toile in real garment fabric:

I have designed the garment with no buttons because it is meant to be seen and worm as a cardigan or overall.
