Simplicity 3867 and 3536

I hope everyone had a great Holiday.I had a wonderful time with family and friends.We did a lot of eating and drinking and laughing.Well I am back to getting things ready for my Son's open house in a couple weeks.I also have finished the top I was making to wear at his open house.


The sun was in my eyes.

Pattern: Simplicity 3867 View CFabric: Cotton
Size: 8
Notions: 18" zipper,hook and eye
Conclusion: I had a lot of trouble getting the yoke over the bodice front shoulder to look even.I think I took it off about 4 or 5 times before I got it on right.Then I had a little trouble putting in a invisible zipper in this top.I took that off about 10 times trying to get it right.I read a lot of peoples review of this top on PR and no one had as many problems as I had.I finally got things going smoothly.After all them troubles I will be wearing this top a lot this summer!!Ha Ha





After seeing Ms. Erica B hook up the McCall's pattern 5586.I love how she didn't use rhinestones on her top she used some jewelry beads.I had to have it!But I couldn't get it because I am on a pattern diet for the summer.So I had to see what I had in my pattern stash that kind of looked like it.

Pattern: Simplicity 3536 View D
Fabric: Mystery knit from Walmart for a dollar a yard.
Size: 8
Notions: Jewels I bought from Walmart for 2.00$ a pack.

Thank you Ms. Erica B. for the inspiration!!SmileyCentral.com

Well that's it for me.Happy crafting!!
