Next up is my try at Simplicity 2971. This tangerine color knit was purchased at Walmart for a dollar a yard. (Walmart was having a good day.) This pattern was really simple. I was afraid that like other patterns, I would look like I was wearing a mumu ( forgive my spelling). But it turned out nice. I especially love the finishing at the top which is just a strip sewn over the raw edges of the neckline. Kinda like you would sew bias tape.I will definitely be sewing this again.
I am into all things summer right now. I try to add different things to my wardrobe that can be interchangeable for work and leisure. I have learned that for my pleasantly plump size, fabrics that drape well flatter me mostly . So I kept that in mind when I made this hot number.
