40th Wedding Anniversary

Today is our official 40th Wedding Anniversary! Friends we celebrated in June on a cruise to Nassau Bahamas and in August to Montego Bay, Jamaica. During our friend's 60th birthday party in Jamaica everyone wore white and I wore Simplicity 2190 view B.



 The fabric is knit from Hobby Lobby in which I used it double as an underlining. The sleeve band wasn't used because I asked my husband's advice and that was his request. I like the underlining because I was able to hand hem the sleeves and hemline without any stiches showing. This fabric was perfect for sewing the  neckline, sleeve openings, and topstitching.
