    Okay, I admit, this is probably one of those as-soon-as-you-say-it-I’ll-go-duh! pattern alterations, but I’d be curious to see a tutorial, particularly if it were for the later version of these with functional buttons. I can’t quite get my brain around how I’d do this. This may have just gotten bumped up in priority on my list of Semana Santa to-dos.

      Thank you! I did my own pattern, but burdastyle has similar patterns, and the alteration is very easy to make. I was thinking about making a little tutorial, but is so easy, that is no neccesary.

      No, you’re right. It seems simple enough. Pick your fave short pattern and alter from there. Cool. Thankyou :)

      Thank you! I think scallops change a simple garment into something special.

      Thank you! I still have to improve the attach of the lining, because it’s the first time I line a pair of pants.
