Spring is finally warm here! I made this EASY COOL TOP using Simplicity 1615 to celebrate~
I chose a light cotton with small flowers. I think it will be COOL and just right over jeans. I wear a lot of T-shirts and this new top gives me some options.
The pattern was very easy, and I love the sleeve and collar detail. I followed the directions which include using bias tape to enclose the seams around the neckline. Next time I make this blouse, I will make some bias tape because I am not crazy about seeing the white bias tape inside the blouse. I am kind of particular about the inside looking as nice as the outside. As usual, I also sewed with french seams – I know – it’s more work but that is just “me.”
Mother tried on the blouse and she wants to make one, too. I have some soft fabric that drapes better that would be great in this pattern. I am sure that I will make this top again, perhaps view E (the green one) next time?
