*Beginner to Advanced Beginner depending on fabric and finishes.*
The basic sewing of this pattern is not any more complicated than your standard knit garment. There are some specific techniques included in stabilizing the gathering of the shoulder and side seam that may be new, but are definitely things that a confident beginner can tackle head on.
The only technique that ventures into the realm of more 'Advanced' is the finishing of the Asymmetrical Neckline. This is an 'Invisible Binding' finish that is not hard, but take patience and a bit more fiddling. Read through all the instructions before starting - don't be afraid to take the extra time to press things well, use hem tape, or otherwise stabilize your fabric to make it easier to work with. This is not a finish to be afraid of - just take your time and you'll be so proud of what you have created!!!
