jeans dress which opens at the front

This fabric isn’t real denim, it’s a “look a like” cotton, which actually makes it lighter. I love the casual look of it and where it during all seasons ( in winter with a big chunky sweater and a pear of boots ). had lots of problems fitting the sleeves since the upper part is quite fitted, the sleeves had to have extra room for movement, so i tried a few solutions and eventually came out with this fold,( which corresponds with the one on the pockets ) and over all, i’m quite happy with it.
