the sewing pattern that ate the internet

12 August 2007

Or, my version of Simplicity 4589.

::100% cotton, bought on impulse about 2 years ago because it was at eyelevel near the checkout queue::

I can see now why everyone loves this pattern: it’s so quick – it only took me an afternoon from start to finish.

I made it a little longer than the pattern and added side vents. Also, because I am fussy about raw edges, I encased all the yoke seams inside the yoke facing, by turning the edge and stitching in the ditch.

It was a beautiful spring day today, and it was lovely to have such a fresh pretty top to wear. All that grey winter wool seems so far away now.

(please excuse the photo – I need to clean that mirror!)

    hehehe, those beads have been in the mouth of every small child I’ve encountered in the past year. Kids love ’em!
