To make the Byrdie sleeveless you’ll have to make a couple of simple pattern adjustments in addition to leaving off the sleeves.
When I’m designing sewing patterns, I’m thinking of all the different ways that a pattern can be sewn by you! I love pattern hacks and I especially love when a pattern can be made over and over again with easy adjustments for new styles.
During testing for the Byrdie Button-up, several testers gently prodded me to add pockets to the pattern. While I thought it was a great idea (!) I wanted to keep the instructions as streamlined as possible. So I opted to leave them out with the promise to do a tutorial on adding them. And I finally did it! Honestly, it’s one of the easiest pattern hacks EVER!
