Christmas Holiday Sewing - Part II Simplicity 9326

The mock turtleneck is much like the mock turtleneck of BWOF 9/10, #121. So I followed the design of the turtleneck to create a clean finish to the 2000 Simplicity version. This pattern fits DD well that made this one easy to make for my sister as well.

Simplicity 9326

Pattern Description: Misses' Jacket or Coat, Pants, Skirt and Knit Top. Fitted pullover knit top A has funnel neck and three-quarter length sleeves. Semi-fitted jacket B or coat C has pointed collar, long sleeves and front Velcro closure. Semi-fitted pants D and skirt E worn 1 inch below waistline have side zipper and side slits. Suitable for Overlock/serger.

Pattern Sizing: 4 - 18. I used 10 - 12.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Pretty much. I added length to sleeves and top. Then I finished the funnel (mock turtleneck) same as Summerset.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. No problems there. I was able to finish one top under an hour.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? "We" like it. Nothing to dislike.

Fabric Used: I ordered several colors of the Hatchi stretch rayon blend jersey from

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Lengthen or shorten sleeves. Lengthen top. Changed the design of the funnel to resemble the BWOF top.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yep. This is a great way to build the winter wardrobe. You can wear these nice top with jeans as well as suits.

Conclusion: Both DD and my sister love the tops. And I'm sure they will get a lot of use out of them.
