What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I didn’t like the sleeves , I thought they were rather boring – so I changed them!
Fabric Used:
A lovely drapey knit in periwinkle blue. I bought 10 yards of it about 3 years ago, god knows why I bought so much!.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I ‘trendy’d’ this pattern up a bit by:simp_3790_back.jpg

  • I changed the sleeves to more drapey flutter sleeves which are like a half moon shape. They give the top a more romantic look.

  • I used a lettuce edge on my serger for the sleeves and bottom hem.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will sew it again – this version and the sleeveless version.
Conclusion
Great wardrobe builder, gives a nice romantic look to a pair of jeans. I just wish I had finished this DURING the summer not after!
