Simplicity 4076

By the time Made by Rae's Spring Top Week is over, I'm going to need a second closet.

And more fabric.

And a housekeeper.

Because I've been sewing. And not cleaning.

And it is evident.


As the post title may suggest, this is from Simplicity 4076, view B. I usually fit a 14 in Simplicity, but I started with a 12 since my fabric was very lightweight and stretchy. I made a muslin with a similar weight knit and found the 12 to be a tad short and tight in the tummy for my liking.

However, the 12 was just right in the chest, arms, and shoulder. So I redrew the pattern with about an inch width and length.

Just right!

My birthday's in June. Just a reminder. In case you wanted to make me a super cute flattering top like this one. I'm just sayin'.
