Butterick 5186-B: Grunge Remix: AT LAST

Close-up of the bodice with various alterations:

1) No hood. Neckline cut down.

2) Sleeves cut wider and with contrast (bias, in this case) cuff linings. Cuffs button onto the sleeves for support.

3) Button front instead of neck split.

4) (No shown) Patch pockets.

And . . . action!

It actually looks better in real life, and it looks much better than I thought it would.

YAY!! Love the 'bias' plaid.

I think it looks awesome! AND comfortable, which means it's double-awesome.
Yeah, it is super comfortable!

It's too hot to wear it here now. Doh! Oh, well--ready for next winter.
