ugliest thing EVER, right?

(my little pattern-maker-in-training is helping me take notes....)
but see the side, it's gonna fold and snap at the top because of that seam
and the front has these 2 pleats....
so, now, I'm going to add a little more width to the pattern, and then, pretty soon, I'll have a super cool, handmade, personalized, IMPROVED version of this!
(you DO see the similarities, don't you?)
