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.
