Right now, my sewing formula is: Simple pattern + Beautiful fabric = Gorgeous garment.
Simple, easy patterns help me to better be able to fit sewing into my busy schedule. That's why I love the Sew Simple pattern range by Simplicity. This tunic top was such a quick and easy sew. I didn't make any changes to the pattern, and as always, the instructions were easy to follow.
I bought 1.5 yards of this silk blend fabric on sale for a total of $7.99, and thread for $1.99, bringing the total cost of this garment to $10. I only have a strip of the fabric left over, which I'm going to use to make a scarf.
The top is very comfortable and will be great to wear during the summer.
By the way, the braid trim is an optional feature and I chose to go without it on my top.
Happy Mother's Day and happy sewing!
