I made this top several months ago for Margaret (I believe I made it in July) and keep on forgetting to post about it. Well, now I'm posting about it.
Pattern Description: Simplicity 3750, View C
Pattern Sizing: Size 14 (I think)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? not really. Because of the alterations I made, it ended up looking kind of different.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the style-- the higher waist and the gathered top are really cute. It was also an easy pattern to work with.
Fabric Used: It's been a while so I don't remember what it is called... I think it's one of the Silky Prints fabrics at JoAnn Fabrics.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I added three or four inches to the top and an inch to the bottom of the front bodice piece. Later I realized I didn't need to add that extra inch on the bottom... oh well. I also widened the skirt piece a little because it was very snug in the hips.
Would you sew it again? Yes. I actually have a top in this style cut out for myself, but for some reason unknown to myself I haven't gotten to work sewing it yet.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes! It's a lovely pattern and the result is very cute! It's also a pretty easy pattern, and the most you have to worry about is it fitting correctly (make a mock-up first!).
