I had made it 3/4 sleeves length, so I considered shortening them, and as I was measuring I decided to just get rid of them altogether. Wow, what a difference! This fabric is way too busy for top+sleeves.
I used Vintage Simplicity 8284 from 1977, which my dear friend Kate gave to me a while back. I already made Ms G pajamas using this pattern, and this time I opted for using a tab instead of the optional pocket on the front slash- and then it just begged for a button...
I also shortened the shoulder length and made the body a bit longer. I finished the armscye with bias tape.
And what's in store for tonight?
It's partly cut, let's see how far it will go!
See you tomorrow!
