I'm procrastinating on cutting out lining, and therefore needed a quick and easy project.
Simplicity 4177, view C was it. It took a few hours, and used up a bit of fabric in perfect fashion.
This is very easy sewing - raglan sleeves, so no sleeve setting, no fasteners of any kind. I made a size 8, with a bit added for my hips - no other adjustment required.
I didn't have enough fabric to get fancy with plaid-matching, as you can see by my ridiculously mismatched side seams. I don't really care though - this is easy-breezy-summer-wearing, I've seen RTW that is just as bad, and I'm reasonably sure only a sewer would notice details like this.
