This is the shawl collar pattern that I have made twice now, which I could probably call fail safe, or fool safe. I usually wear a 'uniform' to work daily and my wardrobe needs to be a mix and match of essential
pieces that are practical and smart for school.
Teaching young adolescents can be challenging and puts you in the limelight for sometimes unusual scrutiny. As a role model for young people it is important to portray professionalism and to never under-estimate the influence an adult can have on the young people we teach. I try to reflect this in my wardrobe; not too much black and grey in one outfit. Also, I feel more confident wearing colour, with a dash of individual creativity.

This pattern is a basic that I have adapted many times to suit the variety of tunics and vests that I make. It seems to suit me well, in all the short and long versions that I have made. Since I first bought this I must have acquired various other patterns that are similar, but this is one of my favourites as it is already tried and true when it comes to fit.
