I used a Katherine Tilton Vogue pattern and altered the neckline. The sleeves are double because the jersey is so lightweight. I cut the upper layer off about 2 1/2 inches up and left that part of the seam open. "Cuffs" can be up or down. The edges are all raw except for the neckline.... And it has washed very well. The dye was just rit in brown, but I didn't use very much. I found on something else that their brown is PINK! I am starting the dyeing class on Craftsy with Jane Dunnewold so future dying will be REAL dyes.
