TV 430

How easy would it be to make this a front closing garment? I have to get myself dressed so back closure isn't an option. Thought I ask before I decide to buy.
Thank you. :)

Super easy! There is lap added to the center back seam for the closure, which is I think 1" wide. Take off the lap at the center back, making it a seam all the way up, and then add the 1" to the center front. Add an extra 1/2" for a seam top to bottom, instead of on fold.

Another option, would be to make the closure down one of the side front seams instead of the center front. It would be more work, as these seams are curved, instead of straight. But it could be a very interesting design element.
