The pattern is so clever - I particularly like the way the lining and facing keep everything neat and out of sight. Sewing the two opposite curves of the lining and facing together is a true test of sanity though - my only advice would be to do exactly what the pattern says. You may think you know better (as I did) but in the end the steps in the pattern do make it easier. And finally, I wrestled with my overlocker and managed to overlock all the seams.
