  12. I have this pattern, one of my first disasters, lol. it was 2nd pattern i'd ever done, did the sides on the wrong side of fabric so all the lose part was inside the, lol. Only recently after more experience was i able to fix it and draft a call sleeve fir the other side. Thanks for tut and color block idea!
