On we go with the (in)famous Simplicity 3835 (or, in german, 7022). This pattern is so popular, it’s scary and I finally gave in and tried it out myself. Plus, I knew it would not only be easy, but fast to sew. Without a project like this inbetween, I’d never accomplish 5 tops a week!
My personal opinion? Yes, I do love it, too! It’s incredibly versatile, depending on what fabric you choose and with several options for alterations. I plan to make more without the elastic in the sleeves and of soft oloured linen to wear at work. This time, I chose batiste <3 One, with a water lily pattern, the other a classic white embroidered fabric – I think you call it “eyelet” in english?
I finished both tops yesterday, meant as today’s entry for the Spring Top Week. Hopefully, Flickr is done acting up and will let me u/l my entries this time. Btw, I think I forgot to mention the Flickr Pool for this sewalong? Take a look, it’s such eye candy!
A word for my german readers (are there any?): This was the first time I used translated pattern instructions. I was very doubtful if they were any good. They weren’t. Although, I got to admit, I did find the part where they told me to “sew the front part of the top to your bottom” rather amusing.
