As much as I love making quilts and crafty things, my first love was sewing clothing. When I was a little girl, my mom made most of my clothes. As soon as I could convince her to let me touch her machine, I started making my own! Ironically, the first thing I remember making to wear was a yellow top (a halter top to be specific. We're talking late 60s, early 70s here! You get the picture). Well today I took time out to make myself a new yellow top.
I had looked at this pattern several times & finally bought it recently. It's a Simplicity Lisette pattern, #0353. It has a dress, skirt and top in the pattern, but it was the top that grabbed my attention. I have my eye on some London Calling fabric at The Quilt Asylum to make one of these tops, but I thought perhaps I should make one out of some 50% off fabric from Joann's first! I wanted to be sure it fit right before I spent more money on great fabric.
Here's a shot of the front.....
What I really loved about this pattern is the back!
All in all, I would recommend this pattern. It was easy to follow and true to size. A win!
