I hope everyone had a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend. Mine was spent working. The long hours paid off and justice has been served. That said, I spent this evening finishing up Simplicity 2616. I decided to make View D. I found the instructions actually fairly easy to follow and didn't run into much trouble at all, although I may not have inserted the elastic tight enough. If, after I wear the top, I decide the shoulders and neck should be tighter, I will open up the casings and pull the elastic to shorten. I really like the fabric I chose. It is a cream colored linen-look with embroidered black flowers. The downside here is that it is a bit heavy. What do you think of this look?
Bottom line on this pattern: Pretty easy. I will definately sew another view using a different fabric.
I hope you've noticed my "Grab" button! I finally figured it out! Yeah! I was feeling pretty techno hip with this accomplishment until I realized that my "Email Me" button isn't functional! Any suggestions?
