Color Me Pretty: Simplicity 1161

This top was a really quick and easy top to make.  I wanted something cute to wear with leggings for an outing.  I purchased this fabric at Joann's months ago as usual it sat in my stash with no particular idea in mind. 

After looking through my pattern and trying to figure out what I could make, I came across this pattern.  I thought it be very playful with this multicolored fabric.  Though the cover photo on the pattern to me was not impressive at all, I did have a vision in mind.   Simplicity 1161, was awesome for this particular fabric.  The way it flows,and the colors just came together effortlessly.  




I could definitely see several of these in my summer wardrobe, especially a black or light blue eyelet fabric.  I would love to make one longer, maybe even as a maxi in a very nice soft knit fabric. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.   What do you think?



Happy Sewing!
