Recently I posted about three Simplicity patterns I purchased during Hobby Lobby's $.99 sale.
Well, I am over my two dead to me Willow Wrap Tops! I am moving on.
I have enough fabric to use the leftover solid and striped fabrics. I started focusing on these two Simplicity patterns.
Originally I was leaning toward S9229. However, I am somewhat skeptical of the measurements on the pattern envelope back. I normally cut a 12, 14, 16, and on occasion an 18 at the bust to skip making an FBA. The finished bust size that matches mine or close to is a size 20 or 22! I have not removed the pattern pieces to see what measurements are printed there if any??!!
Simplicity S9275 has measurements that I normally use and shows the finished bust measurement to be 43 1/2 inches for size 16. So I have decided to make view c which has short sleeves and a short band. There is an opportunity for color blocking.
The pattern pieces have been cut around and ready for fitting. I want to make the pattern the model is wearing but think it will be too warm for our spring and summer.
More to update later.
