A Little More Sequins and Shimmer

Simplicity 1805 Misses & Plus Size pullover knit top in two lengths with sleeve variations in sizes XXS to XXL. This is View A without sleeve bands.


 Fabric:
Top - Pink/Mauve/Multi Poly/Lycra Retro Circles Print Corded/Sequined

 Dress - Hot Pink/Golden Yellow/Multi Roses Poly/Lycra Shimmer Lightweight

Adjustments: The top was lengthened for the dress. An additional six-inch border was sewn to the hem folded in half for additional length. It was worn with a black jacket.

*At least an inch or two needs to be removed from the neck band as it is too wide for me.



This is the same top as here.

  1. I am not sure which one I like better! I love the pink top, I can see wearing it through the fall but I'm a sucker for a beautiful dress too! Great job, I love them both. You are inspiring me......

    1. Glad to be an inspiration. This top is very thin so it works in this weather. Thanks for the note.

  2. Lovely and shimmery! So pretty - I especially like the large floral print - floral on black is just my favourite thing.
