Something simple

Added Nov 16, 2016

So I have been working on a jacket for a month now and it’s been driving me crazy and to add insult to injury I lost my stitch unpicker down the back of a cupboard never to be found.. so I decided to take a step back and sew something simple. I have had this pattern traced since the summer but never got round to making it.
All I did was extend the length of the sleeves and 2 hours later I was destressed and had this cute simple top. I love the pattern and it is so easy to make, I’ll definitely be using the summer fabric I bought for this pattern to make another.

      Thank you Izbott, I now have about 3 projects on the go and when i get frustrated with one I turn to the other I find this way I’m getting less frustrated when i don’t understand the instructions. Then i return to the project with a fresh perspective :-)

      Thanks Chula it’s a great easy pattern. You should give it a go. The jacket is almost done. Not sure it’s done right but Burda instructions are always fun :-/

    The simpler the project, the more you wear it! The top is super cute! You ‘ve got plenty of time for the jacket, the winter hasn’t even started :-)

      Thanks Mary it’s great to wear on it’s own and when it gets colder I will just wear it with a polo neck top. I’m definitely gonna make the summer version too.

    Thanks, Maria, I needed a new black top and this was just a quick simple option. Plus I’m happy and destressed. Now back to the jacket :-/
