Another Built by Wendy

I like this Simplicity 3835 pattern so much that I made another one out of it. I altered the pattern a little:

1) widen the end of sleeves by 2 inches to make them more bubbly (I actually wished that I had widden them a little more).
2) added bands (about 1.75 inches) to gather the sleeves.
3) obviously….I added a flower brooch :) I made it out of the same fabric and added a few swarovski clear crystals and grey pearls.

Material Notes

100% wool crepe (grey), so it does keep me warm in the winter :)

    I have this pattern too so I may have to copy this! I love how her patterns are so adaptable. I also have the BBW pattern for the top with the diamond in the middle but I’ve heard its pretty difficult so I’m too scared to try it yet!!

    I love it. I’m Wendy’s fan too but have not made anything from her patterns yet.

    It’s really nice! I’ve thought of purchasing that pattern but I was afraid it would be too much like a sack. It doesn’t look like a sack on you though!
