Come checkout how I modified a women’s pattern to fit me…
For those that don’t know my girl design patterns for Simplicity and she’s pretty damn good at it…lol! So I was going through some of her old patterns and saw one that I could see myself wearing if I made a few fit adjustments.
So we both ended up making them together and I was super impressed with the way mine came out. I styled my shawl cardigan with a semi-casual look thats comfortable and stylish.
