Thank you for all your kind comments on my two cold shoulder tops from my last post. Since then I have been hard at work on my third version of Simplicity 8337. It truly is a great pattern! I can go on and on about it, but you probably want to see my finished top already, so here it is:
This fabric is another ITY knit, but this time with a mini-chevron motif. I like it because it reads more "casual" than my other two versions, and I have a feeling I will be reaching for this one quite often.
Because this is my third time sewing this pattern, I used every opportunity of my son's naps in order to put this one together. By now I can pretty much sew this top from memory, while only double-checking the correct seam allowances. That was a nice feeling!
Also to note: Don't forget to trim your seam allowances off, depending on the view you choose to sew. That makes a difference in how the neckline sits if you forget this step.
Overall, this is another love! I have a feeling I will be rearranging my closet REALLY SOON so that I can accomodate all of my new makes.
I know this is near the end of May, but I never announced my plans for the month! How did that happen? Well, I am not really sure, but you could probably take a guess at my theme for the month, according to all the tops I have been sewing. It is simply to "put that on REPEAT."
In essence, I am taking ONE pattern, Simplicity 8337, and sewing it over and over. So, I have already sewn View B, and I do hope to get to View A as well, because flounces are so cute and feminine, and on trend (lol). To be honest, I really don't follow trends a lot, but I do like to dibble and dabble in them from time to time.
Also, you can find me on Instagram!! I am pretty low key on there, but I will be posting updates on my progress with the flounce top on there. So, feel free to follow me, and I would love to follow you all in your sewing journeys too!
