Simplicity blouses

Simplicity 2501

Pattern Description:

Misses Blouses...separate pattern pieces for B, C, D, cup sizes.

Pattern Sizing:

6-14 I used the size 12 with the c cup.


Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?


Were the instructions easy to follow?

I found the instructions easy to follow... no moments of head scratching.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I love that it comes with the different cup sizes. Really like the little tie on the front.

Fabric Used:

The first one I made (blue one)I used a cotton for the second one (pink one)I used a poly blend.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

No pattern alterations where needed, it fit great right out of the envelope.


This is a great blouse pattern with no need to do a FBA. Great fit right out of the envelope. Very cute with the front ties and the pleats in the sleeves. Would highly recommend...

It's Been A While!

I can't believe it's been almost two months since I last posted! I have been a bad blogger :( I have make a few things in the last few weeks so I will work on posting them. First up is this little top.
McCalls 5977

This is a quick and easy top to make. I was able to make it out of just one yard of fabric. The printed fabric is a poly that I got at handcock fabrics for just $2.99 a yard. Yep just cost me $3.00 to make this can't beat that.

I make the cream coloured one first with fabric that cost me....wait for it $1.50 a yard. The fit was not to bad but I did have some fabric pooling in the lower back. I decided to add a center back seam on the printed one so I could adjust the back for sway back adjustment.

I made view B and will make some of the other views I'm sure. My daughter loved it so I will have to make one for her next .

Ok got to go get ready for work. I'll try posting some more later this week. I made this mcCalls jacket.
