This came from Simplicity 2181 view A. I got it on one of those $1 sales, and I was interested in the construction. The red fabric is a rayon jersey knit with excellent drape. This wasn’t really my style, so I gave it to my mom, and it looks awesome on her. The neckline is a little low (and I raised it from the pattern), so it will need a camisole.
This project was easy enough, but it did remind me why I prefer to make my own patterns.
