Simplicity 3835 Built by Wendy

The pattern that I won arrived from the States yesterday. I was even more excited once I checked up on Flickr already made tops and decided to make a muslin since it would probably require tweaking. Ladies on-line had raved about it including Amanda Soule.
I traced out the pieces onto a cheap roll of interfacing I bought from Spotlight.
This is a size 12 (the largest available to me) in a white cotton and finished by lunch.

It would have been faster had I not been cleaning up this mess. She loves zinc cream.
Fortunately for me it comes off easily using baby wipes and having timber flooring is a must. My 5year old who helped me clean is a blessing. God I loved her as she cleaned up the floor.

Where were we? Oh yeah. The top. It turns out the size 12 just fits. I need a bit more bust room and at the back. The sleeves were ok as well but I'm not a big fan of an elasticised neckline. It reminds me of an art smock. I will have to make it a bit roomier and pick a nice light cotton that will go with my jeans/skirts/shorts. Summer has decided to make an appearance so I'll be needing a lot more summery tops.

Stay tuned.
