As of late I had turned more to knitting and crochet – rather than sewing. Since returning to the blog and reading all of the inspirational posts of my fellow bloggers – I have once again been bitten by the sewing bug.
A while back I had purchased several sewing books. One of them is called Simply Modern Sewing and has very simple designs. The top pictured above was sewn in one evening. I have been trying to use notions, fabrics, etc. that I have on hand so I only made one row of elastic around the neckline, but it turned out just fine.
The book is simple in design, but also simple in instructions. By that I mean, they don’t provide many photos and pretty basic instructions. It was also a bit difficult finding the pattern pieces on the pattern pages provided. This top was pretty basic in construction and only had four pieces: front, back, sleeves and elastic/neck casing. I think if the pattern had been a bit more complicated, I may have struggled a bit.
Overall I am happy with the outcome and may tackle another pattern from the book in the future but feel I need a few more projects under my belt first.
