Simplicity 1693

I made a top using View F from Simplicity 1693 (size 20).

The fabric is a turquoise cotton which was a delight to sew with. I used the same fabric to make the bias binding (I couldn't find a ready made one that was the same shade). This was my first time using bias binding as well. To keep the seams neat I decided to go for a French seam. I used a button that I received in one of my exchanges with Sarah.

The pattern instructions were easy to follow and it looked like the diagram on the envelope. I didn't make any changes to the pattern and would happily make it again.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and all comments are appreciated.
