As you may be aware I have been sewing tops to rebuild my wardrobe after donating a lot of items this past month, so I decided to make November my month of tops and make both casual and dress tops.
When I came across this pattern: Simplicity 1280, I knew immediately that I would be making this more than once. I saw so many different color and fabric options for this top in my head.
I was gifted this particular fabric from a co-worker who Mother passed and she was seamstress. She gave me a little over 3 yards so I wasn't sure I wanted to make a whole garment like a dress or pant set in this particular design, I thought it would be way too much. So when I came across this pattern, this piece of fabric came instantly to mind, plus I am a nut for Polka Dots.
It was fairly easy to put together, though I made one modification. I extended the sleeve length, because I didn't care for who short the fell on the model on the pattern front. It just looked a little out of place for me. The pictures also look a little red, but the fabric color is actually a really deep pink.
Here is my Polka Dot Cross Body Top:
Here I am wearing it, and yes the picture quality suck, sorry!:
