It’s been quite some time since I’ve used a Simplicity pattern. A few years ago, I stopped wearing them (aside from costumes, I feel like Simplicity has more options) because they never did fit right without lots of alterations. More recently, Simplicity has come out with a ‘new’ line called Sew Simple – an easy to sew collection that has some ‘trendy’ looks, so I thought I would give one a try. I decided on 1972, a “peasant-style”, knit shirt with a tie belt and fun sleeve ‘detailing’. I think this design is a fun look that can be dressed up or down and a perfect style for fall. I searched my stash and decided on a pretty purple jersey that has wonderful drape – which is going to be important with this style so I don’t look like I’m ‘expecting’. I can’t wait to get started! Anyone else testing out this pattern line?
