Simplicity Misses' Top with Neckline Variations 1316Line Drawing

Fabric: Olive Night Plain Weave Poly/Wool Suiting
This is one of my favorite fabrics. I wash and dry it before cutting it.

Adjustments: Added 2 1/4 "  to sleeve length
This is an awesome pattern. I love the curve hemline, the fit, and the length.

 *I did not do my usual one inch adjustment to shorten the back.

Pants are the same as above.

  1. Great wardrobe! I see we shop at the same place, I will have to get out my fabrics and get to sewing. You are such an inspiration. Great job & you look lovely!

    1. Thank you! I look forward to seeing your creations.

  2. Dorothy you've been busy! I love all of your creations. Your work always looks so professional. Very inspiring!

    1. Thank you! You are doing a great job dressing yourself as well. Happy Mother's Day!

  3. You need to get a grip as you are having way too much fun! As always, lovely makes. Thank you for sharing. Karen in Illinois

    1. I seem to have had the hardest time remembering to take pictures when I'm dressed for the day.

  4. All of your garments look great on you! You have been quite the busy bee!

    1. Thank you! I'm still sewing for myself as well as my quilting group.

  5. Great pieces. That's what I need Ms. Dot! A workable, coordinating wardrobe. Takes planning and stick-to-it-ness. Guess that's why I don't have it. (lol). Your efforts have paid off.

    1. Thanks Robin! You can do it by planning first,choosing fabrics to match what you have, and take one piece at a time.
