Jennifer... short sleeves

Added Jun 14, 2008

New York, New Yo...






I know this pattern came with a disclaimer for experienced sewers only, but it had a few things I was always curious about: bias tape (which I love!) and pleats (which I can live without.) I gave it short sleeves and pleated the bib on the bias, which was tricky but I’m pretty happy about it.

    I love the short sleeves! I’ve wanted to make the Jennifer for ages, but it’s far too hot for long sleeves. I think this will be my next project :)

    You’ve done I really good job on this, looks very pretty. I like it with the short sleeves. I really like the pattern but think I’m gonna wait till I’ve had a bit more practice at sewing.
