Perfect Florida Palms

Simplicity 4149 Misses or Plus Size Skirt, Pants, Tunic Top and Scarf

This OOP pattern has been housed for a few years. I thought it would be perfect for this fabric which I purchased from Fabric Mart a few months ago. Since tunics are the trend I'm making several to enjoy during  my travels.

Although I had plans to make a pair of white pants, my friend and I were shopping and ran across these pants for a steal so we both purchased a pair.
 

 
This is a nice weight cotton and fun to sew.  I'm pleased with it, but knits are my favorites. It all about the fit.

 
 
 
Fabric: Red-Orange/Emerald Green/Multi Palm Trees Cotton Print 42W
I purchased 3 yards which was perfect for print placement. As far as alterations - shortened the sleeves and added side slits.

    1. Helen, I might be wrong about the OOP as I have several patterns without the ruffle on the sleeves. Thanks for the compliment.

    3. Helen, I don't know why I didn't check as it is right at my finger tip. It was copyrighted in 2006. You know how we get side-tracked by so many patterns, add them to our collection, and seems as if it takes forever to make them.

    1. Thank you! I really want to make the one with the ruffles, but it'll have to be some lightweight fabric for this season.
