Simplicity Skirt And Top.

Pattern Description:

Misses skirts with yoke and length variations.

Pattern Sizing:


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

I used a blue striped fabric the same as one of the drawings.... so yes it did.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

Very easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Love the wide waist band and the pockets.

Fabric Used:

Some kind of cotton blend fabric that I found in the value fabrics at Hancock Fabrics.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

I made a size 12 with no alterations needed.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I highly recommend this pattern to others. Yes I would make it again.


Cute skirt that's easy to make with many different style and length variations.

The top is Simplicity 2614. Great little blouse pattern that comes with different cup sizes. I'm planning on making another one maybe with the neck tie next time.

Stress levels are much better this week after I managed to squeeze in a little sewing time. I worked on a vogue skirt and cardi.

Thanks for stopping by Have a blessed day.

Stress And Stitches

Sorry it's been a little while since my last post. Due to a family situation I have not been a able to sew a single stitch this past month. Sewing for me is  a stress reliever so as you can imagine I have been a tad stressed :) this past month.

I do have a couple of things to show you that I made up early this summer and never got around to posting them.

This was a quick and easy skirt to make. The only changes that I made to the pattern was to put in a invisible zipper. The fabric has Lycra in it so they are supper comfy to wear.

I felt the need to do something crafty this week so I have been beading some. I'll have to take some pictures of a couple of necklaces I made this past week and post them next time.

Thanks for stopping by.
