Simplicity 2596 Finished

Don't you just love finishing a sewing project?  I wore this right away today under a little pink cashmere cardigan 'cause it's still cool here.  You can see more pictures HERE in my Flickr.
I sewed Simplicity 2596 using both views D & E in a size 10. The pattern suggested a size 12 for my measurements but I probably could have cut a size 6 or 8 because I am thin and the cut is blousy. I love this top!!! It's not very often that I truly love something I sew for myself but this was a winner. The fit is cute and relaxed. Perfect with a pair of jeans or shorts. I felt really pretty wearing this and will definitely make a couple more. The next one I think I will do just the elastic at the arms and a regular hem. I like the top without the elastic at the arms too. Yea!!!

Recap from previous post:
Pattern: Simplicity 2956 view D/E
Size: 10  (I wear a 4/6 normally)
Fabric: Dotted Swiss from Joann
Trim: Crocheted from stash
Buttons: Vintage


  1. It's super cute! I'll have to check out your flickr pool.

  2. Oh wow! What a pretty top, the fabric is so lovely and the style is wonderful, I love it.

  3. So summery and pretty, very nice ;-)

  4. I want that fabric! I have a thing for strawberries. :)

  5. See, that top doesn't "look" homemade - you did such a good job and it does look good on you. I say you on Sew Mamma Sew.
