This Bodysuit is FIRE!!! Quick and easy and can be worn dressy or casual. My plan is to wear it with jeans and matching boots. YES, I bought boots to match this fabric, who wouldn’t? This Wine/Burgundy color is all over the place. You see it in jackets, shirts, sweaters, jeans, leggings, t-shirts, and boots, of course. LOL!
This was how I spent my Saturday Night. It was the best. I studied this pattern for a week to make sure I could get the snaps and the sleeves to be perfect. The snaps were a struggle, but I got it done. The sleeves, came out FABULOUS. I took a Guided Sew Along with Leslie Bentley over at The Sewcial Place on Facebook to learn the sleeve technique and with that guidance I had no doubt about the sleeves. Leslie, by the way is a great teacher. You should check her out if you haven’t already.
Bishop sleeves are the thing right now and I love them. They add class to any top or dress.
