Way back in January (and I say way back, because it feels like that right now) in the midst of Winter, we sailed all the way across the pond to ever wonderful New York City.

I pondered on it for some weeks and finally decided on a Jumper version of Simplicity 8045. Unfortunately, when I came to cut this out last week, disaster struck! I found 3 holes in it!!!
I could hardly take it back(!) but as this is a loose knit I managed to sew the holes up and use that piece for the underside of the collar. I only had 1.5yards so this was the best I could do. And It turned out good so alls well that ends well.
What struck me about this pattern is the very wide collar. Most off the shoulder of this style are much narrower. With my fabric, the wide collar works well.
I also love the gathering in the side seams and collar. I love gathers and I love anything off the shoulder so this pattern was a good find for such a special fabric
and the gold border edge on the opposite side of the fabric for the sleeves
and speaking of sleeves, the pattern features 3/4 length so I lengthened mine just because I love long sleeves!
Thanks for stopping by and taking time to read :)
