Something to Wear Out
Thursday nights, we go to trivia. It’s a routine that, in the least, gets us off the farm at least once a week. This last Thursday, I decided I wanted something new to wear. A couple of stashed fabrics, a pattern, and maybe three or so hours later: voila!
I’ve used the pattern before, back well near the first days of this blog. It’s Simplicity 4561 and this time, I went with View C, and followed the instructions pretty closely (what? I said I was going to let someone else do the planning), with a couple of exceptions. One: I gathered the center front of the bust, and two: I added a strip of the contrast rib (which you can see below) to the back piece, rather than adding elastic. I also ended up shortening the straps considerably.
