Simplicity 1106

Pink top 2

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is something I decided to whip up while I wait for my lining fabric for the riding jacket. It was a very quick and simple pattern and took me about an hour to finish up.

I got the fabric at JoAnns last year while I was buying something else. Isn’t that always how it happens? I saw it and fell in love! It is a very light and drapey rayon/cotton blend and it will be perfect for spring and summer.

The back opening is something I don’t normally do. I am pretty modest and worry about my bra strap showing through, heheheh. The top yoke lays flat but looks a little wonky in this picture because of the way I’m standing. Regardless, I am very happy with the way it turned out and I know I will be wearing this a lot.

In addition, this top looks like it will do well as a casual top or dressed up with white slacks or skirt. I, of course, do not typically wear skirts or dresses but I might make a bit of an exception.

So, that’s all for now.

Happy sewing!
