Simplicity 4045



I'm so happy with this top. The bodice is cut on the bias and there is gathering at the center front neckline. The little sleeves have an inverted pleated at the top and at the hem and the collar anchors the bodice and the sleeves.

I made no adjustments to the pattern, which makes it gold in my eyes. I like the bias drape over curves and the sleeves are just the right length and width to make my upper arms look a lot slimmer.

This is so comfortable to wear and so cute, I think I'll make the dress for Christmas. Maybe a lined georgette or soft wool crepe.

Yep, my blahs are definitely over. Posted by Picasa

  2. I have considered this pattern several times. But had second thoughts about the look of the top. I am so glad you posted a photo of this. I really like the look on you and think I might be able to wear this myself. Glad I checked in to see what was what.

  4. What a beautiful top. It looks great on you. And with no adjustments at all, it is a real winner. I am adding this to my list for the next Simplicity is on sale.
