Boxy top - Simplicity 1366

Thank you for all your lovely messages welcoming me back, and I'm now ready to show you my first make. Don't forget, the giveaway is still open, so don't miss your chance to enter ;)

It's a little cropped boxy top, Simplicity 1366. It's not only fabulous, but incredibly easy to put together. It has no darts, or closures, and the sleeves are sewn flat, rather than set in (setting sleeves is a little pet hate of mine). Need I say more?

The only thing that I did slightly differently in terms of construction was the neckline finish. As usual, I made self fabric bias binding and used that as a facing.

The fabric is a beautiful piece of vintage seersucker that I picked up from our trip back to Cardiff (where hubby and I first met all those years ago) last summer. It was an absolute dream to work with, and super comfortable to wear.

There's not much more to say, apart from that I'm already planning on making another one! It's truly a doddle to put together, and the design is so versatile. Watch this space :D 

Have a fab week everyone!

  1. That reminds me of a top I wore to death years ago. How I wish we could still get Simplicity in Canada!

    1. Ah, I had no idea that you couldn't get Simplicity in Canada any more! It's my favourite out of the big 4, and that's a real shame!
