 Personal notes:

This is a great basic! sewing bias binding can be intimidating but it's a great skill to work on. The trickiest part about this one is the bias juncture to the center front placket.

What I'd do different or similar notes:

I find the back pools at my waist. Adding side vents helped this but I'd probably increase the back along the hip line and add some shaping darts if I really wanted to get this one right.
