A top from the Built by You collection by Wendy Mullin (Simplicity 3835). It’s a really nice pattern. A few modifications this time. I was inspired by some creative sewers on flickr.com and made the neckline on this top much looser than the pattern calls for. I probably added 5-6 inches to the recommended elastic length to make it more of a boatneck. More flattering, methinks. I also opted not to use elastic in the sleeves for a crisper look. Per usual, easy little sewing job.

Material Notes

cotton, elastic

    Well it’s great. My favourite type of pattern with this kind of neckline. Almost all my baby shirts have this type of neckline. I never tried to make one for me, though. I should tackle that next I presume.
