#vintagepledge · Advance American Pattern A106 · Sewing · Style 1225

Wait! Wait! I have one or two last things to show you!

I look at these photos and marvel that it was ever mild enough to venture out of the house in short sleeves.

The second thing is a new-to-the-blog pattern:

I like how this pattern allows stripe play.  I do not like the length of the sleeves, I might tinker with them in the new year.  I might also tinker with the collar, because despite reigning in the pattern’s exuberance at the collar prep. stage:

That collar is still a bit of a clunky-chunky beast.
