Next: BWOF 07/08 131 Pants & 133 Blouse

My next project is from the July 2008 issue of BWOF. You can't tell from the photograph, but the pants fabric is a black and white plaid with barely visible blue and pink pinstripes throughout. The blouse fabric is black microfiber. I'm going to change the sleeves on the blouse from 3/4 length to full-length with a cuff. I have two options. Transfer a sleeve from another pattern or lengthen the sleeve pieces given and add the cuff. Although it would be easier to transfer a sleeve, my preference is to lengthen the pieces because I want to maintain the the two piece sleeve. Although this task sounds easy enough, it's a new endeavor for me. Remember, I'm not used to making changes to patterns. I might have to add some more ease into the sleeve. Anyway, I've got something to keep me busy for the duration of my winter recess.


  1. Good morning! Yes, this will keep you busy, but you will have a beautiful outfit when you are finished. I'm hoping to get to my sewing machine shortly and finish my coat this week!

  2. Nice combination. I say go for length the original sleeves. Happy Holidays!

  3. Ooh, I look forward to seeing this top made up! I loved it in the mag and completely forgot about it!
