Boho Blouse to Sew

I found another pattern while I was cleaning. I'm thinking this would make the perfect choli type top for belly dancing. Or just to wear as a Boho look. I love all 3 versions and the sleeves would be great for dancing. The only problem is the largest size is 20, and I wear 22.  I might have to leave out the back zipper and make it lace up instead, if the girth fits my rib cage.  Guess I'll make one out of  practice fabric to check the size.

Butterick Retro Coat B4928

When I get to my new home the first thing I want to make is a coat. I haven't lived where snow was a possibility since I was a child in New Mexico. Nor do I own many warm clothes.  I'm looking forward to sewing warm snuggly clothing and accessories. When I was packing I found this Butterick Pattern 4928. I may have to enlarge it a big but that shouldn't be too hard as the seams are pretty basic.
