Simplicity 2596

For the last couple of days I have been playing around with fabrics and patterns in an attempt to get something sewn up for Spring Top Week.  This is what I came up with.

The fabric is an ever so sweet Dotted Swiss cotton with a vintage floral pattern.  Purchased at JoAnn's last week.  I bought a couple prints because like I said...they were ever so sweet!  In fact while they were being cut I just kept lamenting on how cute they were.  Dotted Swiss just screams SPRING.

The little crocheted trim is left over from sewing the girls dresses a couple of years ago.  The buttons are vintage from one of my button jars.  I have cut and sewed Simplicity 2596 view D/E.  I still need to add the elastic to the bottom hem. With any luck I will get a picture taken of the finished top today and then I will be back with a pattern review.

  1. Ahhh, too cute! I must have missed this somehow, probably in my race to finish one of my Spring Tops. I think the competition this year is going to be fierce!
