Simplicity 1463


I loathe shopping for jeans so much that I've been wearing the same badly fitting pair for 3 years and they are well worn and quite frayed in places now. So I braved the shops when I was in Perth last week. Olive was being quite cross as usual and I think they wanted me out of there very fast so they were very helpful and now I have a pair of jeans that fit. So then I needed something to wear with them. I managed to fit in a visit to Knitwit and find a couple of bargain pieces to make Simplicity 1463.
 I cut out the large and made no changes. It looks exactly like the pattern cover.
 It's a really easy pattern, takes barely any time to make one and it is very comfortable. Perfect for this change of season weather. The fabrics I used were quite light, I don't think you would want to use a heavy or thick fabric with this pattern as it is quite boxy.
This might be one of those patterns that gets made over and over.

You look lovely in all colors! :o) That is such a flattering top. Have you noticed SO many fabric designers are adding knits in their collections? If only I sewed clothes.
