Simplicity 8513 Stretch Velvet Bodysuit
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.
