Antonia is really a blank slate; a jumping off point to show you how to work English Tailoring from the top down. Once you work the shoulder area you can do anything with your Antonia…add waist shaping, pockets, a stitch pattern, a completely different collar.
You will see how working English Tailoring from the top-down eliminates all seams.
