I finally completed my Christmas Day top on New Years Day. I used the Simplicity pattern 1667, from which I have made two pairs of pants. Echoing my pants experience, I am underwhelmed by the top. I suspect I have made a wadder. The neckline is just a bit low for me and too wide across the back neck. I measured very carefully and still made it too large. The sleeves are so so, I am not keen on the back bodice and yoke style, and it just seems to swim on me. Botheration! At this moment I do not think it can be saved.
Just boring and too big. More on my blog.
January plans = more pants, searching for a decent capri pant pattern. Any suggestions?
