Description

This was the most amazing experience I’ve had sewing thus far. From cutting out to wearing it. I also made the yellow leather belt. Throw on a blazer for more options.

Instructions were so simple.

Alterations: Took an 1.5” from waist and shorten sleeves.

This pattern will be in my rotation for a while to come.

    It looks awesome, I have that pattern….hmmm. So help me out, I’m 5"2, how tall are you? and what size did you cut? This could help me figure out the size I should cut.

      Thanks! Well you’ve got to sew it, esp since you have it! lol. I’m 5’2" as well. I measures based on my bust and took in a few inches at the waist and thigh.
