The line of center back buttons is my favorite feature of the Galicia. It’s really cute. Don’t let it scare you though; even though the buttons and buttonholes are completely functional, you don’t actually need to unbutton that many (or at all) to get in and out of the top. Almost half of my testers said they can get in and out of the top without unbuttoning; another 30% of them said they only need to unbutton the top one. So it’s not necessary to have another person to help you with dressing.

The Galicia has optional fish-eye darts in the front and back waists. My opinion is that if you choose to make the Galicia out of a lightweight and flowy fabric, you can skip the darts. And if you want to make it out of structured fabric, it’s better to have the darts. But of course, the choice is yours! The beauty is that you decide after you completely construct the top; it’s not too late to make a decision then.
The Galicia comes in long and 3/4 sleeves. I made the 3/4 sleeve here because I think it’s nice for spring. But for the cooler weather places, the long sleeve is perfect.
Let’s take a look at the beautiful Galicia my lovely testers made!
Thank you, my lovely testers!
