This is the reprinted Simplicity 3688 pattern, a fancyish top from the 1940’s. I must say it was a wonderful pattern. Simple, clean, and easy, thank goodness. Kinda bookwormy in design is the long sleeves and high collar, so I took in the pleats to make it a teensy bit sexy, and the closure in the back is like a little secret flash of skin. The satin is the Casa satin from Joann’s, and it’s positively a dream, minus the fraying. Oh yeah, I met Olympic gold medalist Dan Jansen in it, too!
