The pattern includes some lovely large facings (why don't we get many of those in modern indy patterns?) which I usually like to sew down for a clean finish that needs no ironing. (yay!) I like vintage, hand-embellished Mexican + Indian tops...and also like to spend time hand stitching...so I hand stitched around the facings + at the sleeve edges. I might add some little patch pockets as well, but ran out of black thread toward the end of sewing the drawstring. I like the slightly cropped length, but might add a couple of inches to the length next time I sew this pattern.
