Well at least is was cold outside for a few days this week. Every time we have a little cold snap I remember that I don't really have many sweat shirts.
Simplicity 2054 this fall I had to have it right then. Thankfully, I saw it while thumbing through a pattern book because they were on sale. I still had to have it though because of the cool elbow slits. If you look really closely at the photo on the envelope you can see what you can see more clearly here and that is that the slits are not really centered over the elbow. This is fine but if I had realized I would have shifted them closer to the side seam to position them a bit better. I also added a bit of length to the upper arm. I have long arms though. I still think they're a fun detail though the do not help much in the keeping warm department.
