Simplicity 2942


Pattern Description: Juniors/Juniors Plus dress, mini dress, and tunic with sleeve variations. I made the tunic.
Pattern Sizing: Size AA (5/6-15/16)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did.

Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very good.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like how the front facing and back facing were done. It gives a very finished look to the top.

Fabric Used: I think it is a cotton. I found it in the bargin bin at JoAnn's. It is a bright pink color, which I think fits in with the "bright colors" trend this spring. It has a silver thread running through the stripes.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: It called for a casing at the waist with a drawstring. I omitted this and just sewed some 1/4" elastic there instead.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I probably won't sew it again, but I would recommend it. It is a cute top.

I was able to spend some time in my sewing room this weekend, and last, and this top was easily completed in just a couple hours. It went together very easily. I was nervous about the fit because it is a juniors pattern, but it fits well, and doesn't have all the extra ease you find in most misses patterns from the Big 4.

I am also working on a cathedral window pillow like this one from Moda Bake Shop. I just need to add the borders and sew it to he backing.
