When Simplicity released their Summer patterns, I must admit I didn't immediately
run to the site like I have in past, because lately it's only been one maybe
two I'd purchase. But when I did get around to looking at the summer release,
Now this one in particular I was very fond of (check out the price). I've had this original pattern pinned on my board forever!!! I was too excited that they re-released it!!!
This reminded me of the good ole seventies soo much! I couldn't even wait til it
arrived in my local fabric store, so I downloaded the PDF! How bout that!
So, I sewed it right up with some old fabric to see if there were any alterations
I needed to make. I traced the size 14 and after sewing it up I had some gaping on the sides.
So I folded out a dart, which you can see below, and that seemed to do the trick.
I wear a DD-cup so it was a little big so you can go from there far as sizing!
I think I will interface the midriff for more stability, so my rolls don't show, lol.
This is probably the only type of halter I feel comfortable enough to wear, I cant
do full belly, No! The peplum covers my tummy perfectly, I can get away with some jeans, shorts or a skirt.
I may need to extend the back peplum a inch or two to close it up a bit, but I'm satisfied that there is no spillage on the sides. I'm a seventies baby, well eighties too, and I love that era of clothing. I plan to remake this in denim & gingham, so I may or may not need midriff interfacing, depending on the weight of the denim.
Oh, and that's my cheesy son doing the, "Nae-Nae" or whatever in the background. Chern I tell ya, supposed to be my photographer. :-/
Til my next post, C-ya!!
