It was sew easy

I have a bad habit of stocking up on patterns whenever they go on sale at Joann’s. Eventually, I am going to make my way through all of them! :)

I have been holding on to this one for awhile and even though the pattern says “It’s so easy” I thought it was lying so I never bothered to try it.


Now that I am living in San Diego and I am realizing that my closet is full of more cold-weather clothes than warm-weather clothes, I decided to go through my patterns and fabric and get sewing.

This pink fabric has been in my “to sew” stash for awhile as well. It is so pretty and light and I kept thinking I wanted to make a skirt out of it. Instead, I used it to make this type in style “a” without the belt (because belts and I just don’t get along).

Here is the final result.

Simplicity 2418

I have worn this top a couple of times since making it and I just love it. It hides all the wrong bumps in all the right places! ;)

Oh and it really is as easy as the pattern says it is. Smile

  1. So cute! I'm impressed with your sewing skills!

  2. THANK YOU, Melinda!! It had been years since I have really sewed so I am excited to get back into it. :)
