I made this as a birthday gift for my cousin. I used Simplicity 2484. Overall the pattern and instructions were easy to use. This was the first time that I had used bias tape to finish the neck hole and armhole, and I was very pleased with the result. I will definitely be using this technique more often. I also used bias tape around the edges of the facings on the jacket to give them a more finished look. I used flannel for the dress and jacket so that they would be very soft and cuddly.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
