HAPPY MONDAY!!!   I won’t be sewing for the Spring Wardrobe Challenge at all this week :-o.  I’ll pick it back up the second week in March.  IMG_3397In the meantime, Simplicity (c. 2004) 4887 Views C and F are complete.  They have been in my “unfinisheds” since Winter 2014.  Scarlet and Gray…colors that are synonymous with them OHIO STATE BUCKEYES. 🙂IMG_3388The top fabric is the same used in this Burda 9306 dress blogged about here.   That pattern was free when I downloaded it a couple of years ago.  The pants fabric is a polyester double knit suiting that I inherited from Virginia. The pants are the only view that doesn’t require stretch knits.IMG_3398I have a jacket, also in the unfinisheds, using the same scarlet fabric.  I stopped working on it because I (think) I shortened it too much.  Completing the pants have made me want to revisit the jacket to see if there’s a possibility of coordinating a pant suit.IMG_3406The pattern instructions and illustrations were great.  I am certain that I will make another version of this top at some point, probably a hooded version.  The pants, which are otherwise pretty basic, have a partial elastic waist in the back, a detail that I like.IMG_3409If by chance you have this pattern and you’ve not made it yet… you should pull it out and stitch it up!


Until next time…PEACE AND BLESSINGS!!!
