Simplicity 2365

Here is my completed Simplicity 2365, first mentioned here.  I wore this yesterday for my big guy's 5th birthday party - see the Spiderman banner and bounce house cord in the background.



 Hubs says it looks like a maternity shirt but assures me I do not look pregnant. :-)
 The fabric is cotton voile from Gorgeous Fabrics several years ago.

 I took these hanger photos after wearing the top all day - hence the wrinkles.
 Buttons for the sleeve tabs are from JoAnns.
 I made a narrow machine hem on the machine - very easy.
This top wasn't too difficult. The trickiest part was trying to make all the tucks at the front even.  I used an eraseable marker to mark the folds.  I used silk organze to interface the collar and sleeve tabs.  I didn't interface the sleeve cuffs to keep a really relaxed roll.

I'm very happy with how this came out - light and airy and perfect for the coming summer.

Perfect for summer and in my favorite color, too! :))) No, it doesn't look like maternity, it looks like comfy.

Happy Sunday,
Lois
