|2 for her and one for me|
Top #2 is Simplicity 1362 View A - I always end up with kind of pattern - the kind I don't love but go ahead and buy because it's on sale and cause I might want it later. (hahaha!) I knew full well going in that there was going to be a battle matching the stripes of this chiffonny aztec print - I usually avoid prints like this. But it was on sale and I liked the colors. Easy Pattern EXCEPT I don't like using bias binding to finish the neckline (I skipped using it on the armholes though - just serged and turned under). The fabric is sheer so it'll have to be worn with a cami.
Top #3 Vogue 1282 Donna Karan's crazy pattern made for the fourth time. I LOVE IT!, and if it wouldn't be too darned crazy I'd make it in EVERY color. Several people mentioned that they wanted to try this pattern so I wanted to suggest checking out Barbara V's tip on incorporating a BACK DART that will make the back neckline fit better. It works like a charm.
