I'm on my way to meeting my 1st goal. I just finished my pattern 2593 Simplicity by Cynthia Rowley. I did the sleeveless version with folded neck band. I used a sateen ( I think) fabric. This was tricky to work with. Very slippery. I think next time I work with this fabric I will use a rotary cutter so I can have more control as I cut around the pattern pieces. This was a pretty easy pattern and came together real fast and I'm sure it's super easy for the experienced out there. My skills are improving with each pattern I do. I had a little trouble with doing the binding around the arm holes and neck hole but this was a good learning experience.
Here it is!
It's a little difficult to see the twist of the neck band in the pictures because of the pattern.
I wore it to work today with a black bolero and some pearls. Cute huh?
