Sunny Day to All,
I was extremely surprised to see the feedback from my last post. I received so many messages. I literally spent the entire Saturday night responding to private messages. My DM was on FIRE! I have so much to share, so much to say about my journey. I will be sharing more very soon. Stay tuned!
Let's get back to this fantastic pattern review. Hubby and I was invited to an All Black Affair on a cold Saturday Night in November. I didn't have a lot of time to sew so I decided to make a simple top. I also didn't want to be regular so I thought I would add a little sequins to the black to stand out. I purchased this fabric a while back from Gstreet Fabric. It was perfect for this vintage Simplicity pattern, Simplicity 8452. It took me just about 2 hours to make this top. Working with sequins is not as easy as it seems.
I must admit... I had a hard time figuring out how to wear this top. I kept wearing it upside down and couldn't figure out why it didn't fit me. I was confused for a good 30 minutes before I figured out that I had it on upside down. HA!
I chose to wear this sequins top with some tight high-waisted pants from New York and Company. and rose gold jewelry to match the sequins on the top. Please note that these pictures are Pre-surgery before Thanksgiving. Enjoy these few pics and don't forget to say Hello! Happy Sewing to You my loves!!!!
About The Pattern
Simplicity 8452 is extremely easy. I cut size medium but I believe that the large would be ok as well if I wanted it to be a little loose. I liked the tight fit since I was headed to a nightclub. I found the vintage pattern explanation a little harder but this is just 3 pieces and it was pretty easy to sew. I received several compliments for this top. This is definitely a beginners pattern. Hope you enjoy these few pictures. Happy Sewing to You!
