HELLO DARLINGS! I am getting so excited about my trip to NY. I have been trying to get some travel sewing done and hopefully can post pics of those pieces next week. This two piece is from two different patterns. My top is SIMPLICITY 8128 and my skirt is  NEW LOOK 6456 both pattern reviews are below.

The fabric is a really great Linen polka dot print I got from THE FABRIC STORE 136 S. La Brea Ave, LA California 90036 – Ph: (323) 931-8300 la@thefabricstoreusa.compolks-dot-back-2Top Pattern Description: SIMPLICITY 8128 

Pattern Sizing: I cut the 8

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, I was going to make the skirt and top from this pattern but I didn’t have enough fabric so instead I picked the NEW LOOK pattern for my skirt.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the look of the top, the ties in the back, the wide hem, the crop version 😉
