Simplicity 1198 - I Couldn't Resist Making Another One





I like the green version of Simplicity 1198 so well, I couldn't resist making another one.

The multi-color fabric is part of the Hancock spring fabric collection. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for another version of this cute side drape top.





I made this one the same as the last. The fabric does not have as much stretch as the green knit from Vogue fabric, but there was enough stretch to skip any fitting adjustments.

I really like the color palette. It can be worn with a variety of colors. For spring I will make two pairs of pants: ivory and paprika. Both will look great with this top. Today, it's worn with Vogue 8799 made a few years ago.

That's all for now. Happy Sewing!
