Simplicity 1318

I started on this project yesterday evening and would have liked to have completed it this evening. DH and smartphones and computers are just not in sync; I always get called into to help with those crisis.

Now I am just plain too tired to finish it so I will just let you know that the fabric, the machines and me have been in sync until his crisis.  All is well for him now!!!

Here is a shot of the pattern and the fabric.

I cut a small through the shoulders and upper chest area and then increased to medium from bust to bottom. I cut the length at xxs as I was too lazy to cut the medium and then adjust the length, this took off about an inch which was what I wanted.

All edges were serge finished.  The center back and shoulders are attached; one sleeve has been sewn and there is where I ended.  I love how the "simplicity" of this pattern.  My only dislike is that there are no finished measurements printed on the pattern pieces for bust, waist or hips.  On the envelope back it only gives the finished length for each version of the pattern--really???!!!!  I flat measured the pattern and determining that I might could get by with a small but decided to cut to medium as noted above; if too full then deeper seams are easy to do.

I think I will make Version A in the near future.  I like the cropped look of it.

That's all for now.

  1. Hi Linda!
    I just bought that pattern because I really started wanting a kimono. I'm usually late to the party on fashion trends, but I'm seeing a lot of kimonos lately, so maybe I won't catch the tail end on this one. Love your fabric choice...can't wait to see the finished project!
