March Break - Day 3

Well, I sewed another top from Simplicity 3835. I know it's boring to read about, but I really needed a top to match a pair of black pants that I'm wearing on Friday night to a fancy restaurant.



As I was sewing it I wasn't lovin' it. I kept thinking I'd wear it on Friday and then give it to my Mother (DianNe). But forget that! Once it was done I was diggin' it. I followed Lera's lead and lengthened the pattern by about 2 inches (I had only added about 1 for the previous ones I've made) and I really like the little extra length! (Thanks Lera!).

I'm off to a geocaching event tonight and then I'll be in full cleaning mode tomorrow to prepare for my Mother's arrival on Friday. I'm thinking March Break, days 4 and 5 might not be so crafty. We'll see.

I like that shirt! I think it will look fab with black pants.

Hey. If/when we get together this summer, we will have to wear "the shirts." Maybe I'll have a "club" shirt by then, too!

It was great to see you last night (even if it was for a few minutes) loved the shirt you were wearing that you made. Very cool!!!

and i never tire of seeing them.

I love this pattern, thanks for posting it. I've been imagining a top like this, in jersey, with a little bit of a lower neckline, and gathered up with a bow off to one side instead of elastic...inspiring...
