Hello! I made a Simplicity 8454 top over the weekend! I was in Jo Ann’s on Saturday and noticed they were having a 99 cent Simplicity pattern sale. I was so glad to get this pattern! I picked up two others. It was such a good sale, it was hard not to go overboard!
I’ve had a couple yards of this floral Swiss dot fabric (also from Jo Ann’s) sitting on my shelf for nearly a year and thought it would be perfect for this top.
I really love this top. It’s so cute and fun with the ruffles. It’s going to be perfect to wear in the spring. The pattern came together quickly. The fit is pretty good. I do wish I had a tiny bit more room around the arms where the ruffle is sewn in. The pieces didn’t quite match up so I’m not sure if I made a mistake while cutting, or what. I plan on making another one so hopefully I figure that out next time.
Today was such a beautiful, warm day. It made me so excited for spring and a spring wardrobe! I have a weekend full of sewing planned so I should be back soon with lots to share!
