This is a Cynthia Rowley pattern (Simplicity 2281). It was straightforward to make but I kept getting in a bit of a pickle with the fit (sloping waistband and a gaping back), eventually got this sorted and now I’m really happy with the result. Not sure if I’ll make another of these but I like this one so that’s fine.
What do you think of these summery styles?
