Simplicity 2584

I had grand plans to sew many new summer tops,
but this is all I have finished,
and summer ends in about 3 weeks?
Oh well...
by Cynthia Rowley.
I made View C with my own modifications
to the sleeves.
I loved the red & white cotton plaid
when I found it on clearance at Joann Fabrics...
after it was sewn, I wasn't so sure if
I would actually love it on...


Finally, a couple of weeks after it was done
I decided to give it a try...
...and it's so comfortable to wear,
 I think it's a keeper.

{And don't you love the becoming hand
and arm veins?}

  1. Well done with the top...I know exactly what you mean about purchasing material to sew for a particular season...and by the time you get it done...the season is nearly over! Oh well...you'll have it NEW for next summer!

  2. This top turned out really cute! It was cute on the hanger but looks much better on. It's inspiring me to try and do more sewing. :-)

  11. It looks great on you! Love that fabric - and such evident expertise at matching your plaids. You could extend its life into fall with a t-neck?

  12. I'm glad you showed in actually on. I forget sometimes how different something can look actually on a person, rather than just hanging. It is really becoming on you, much more than I would have guessed from seeing it on the hanger. As usual, nice work!

  17. Love the top. Love the veins!

    I hate getting blood drawn. My veins are deep and they roll. Your arms are beatiful to me!

  18. Love the top! You really did a good job matching the plaids up--perfect! I didn't notice the hand and arm veins if you didn't mention them. The top and the fact you are in shape is what I would have noticed. Lovely!
