A Sunny Simplicity 3266

Simplicity 3266

I made no. 3 (top right)

I wanted to make something a bit sunny to take my mind off the appalling weather we’ve been experiencing here in Britain, so I decided on this simple blouse.

It was really reasy to make – the size was spot on, and there is none of that annoying gaping you sometimes get with buttons over the bust area.

And it was quick to make – finished it in a couple of afternoons!

Here are some details:

I continued the summery theme with some sparkly buttons

And the collar – a little bit tricky to attach because of the body and collar being cut as one piece, but I got there in the end!

That’s pretty much it, but you can pop over to my blog if you want to read a bit more about this project.

See you soon!

  • …and just how stylish are you lady! This is beautiful, Ive not been able to sew due to an iminent house move for some time now and I cannot wait to get my machines out – I am looking for something similar to this and it may just be my mission to find a pattern and DO IT

  • Cute! Love the buttons!

  • Love this top, and the colour looks great! ENVY!!

  • Absolutely gorgeous. Looks amazing on you :-)

  • Wow, looks great! I’m always worried that those oversized collars won’t look as good on a person as they do in the illustration, but you look fabulous! And I adore the buttons, they’re perfect.
