Hey, look! I finished a top!

Buuut I am sort of on the fence about the fit.  That's why I didn't model it.

 I used Simplicity 4589, view E.  I wanted something light, loose, and cotton-y to wear as an alternative to tank tops in the summer.  The fit in the bust and shoulders seems to be fine, but  it tends to cling more than I would like in the hip/tummy area.  Also, the length is way short.  I didn't even hem it, just finished the edge with bias tape.  I am not totally giving up on this pattern, though.  If/when I try it again, I'll lengthen it and cut out the next size up in the hip area (boo).  This one will be passed on to my shorter torso-ed friend.  You know who you are!


  1. Maaaaybe! I really hope it fits you better than me. I think you would look super cute in it!
