Simplicity 2182

I made Simplicity #2182 View C a while ago and forgot to post it online. I used a teal knit interlock fabric from Jo-Ann Fabrics. I am not happy with how this came out. I made it too big so it isn't flattering and I think it's too short.

I didn't like how the ruffle edges were supposed to be unfinished so I lined them with left over black lace from previous projects. I only did one ruffle on the top and one on the side instead of two like the pattern called for.

As you can see, I had a hard time sewing the ruffle onto the top.

What I did like about this project is the braided strap and how the back looks.

 I'm thinking about making this top again in white but smaller, longer, and with the ruffles done the way the pattern calls for.

  1. I didn't notice there were any issues with your top until you pointed it out. I love your choice color. I think your proposed changes will make it even cuter:)
