Simplicity 2192 - a second try

My first try at Simplicity 2192 turned out unwearable, not because of my sewing, but because of the fragile nature of the fabric. 

I did like the pattern though, and thought this worthy of another try. 

Thoughts? I like it. It's stash fabric, I'm happy to use it. I'm hoping it'll soften further in the wash, since I think the silk of the earlier version drapes better - something that's a necessity in this boxy shirt. 


I'm making a lot of really easy tops, and am wondering if it's time to branch out to a more complicated project. We'll see. After a summer of not very much sewing, easy tops have got me back to the swing of things, and I like having sewing mo-jo.

It does look simple, but simplicity nowadays rock! I stumbled on your blog while I am looking for crafts and inspiration for my new clothing project. Honestly, I am not very good at sewing, no matter how much my mother patiently thought me...:D But I really want to have a boutique of my own in the future. For now, I will just look for leasing companies that can help me on the financing.

Thanks Reethi! I really enjoyed a lot visiting your posts...

This is the brand new characteristic, nevertheless try out woodcutting your Ivy in which expands in many of the partitions close to Runescape, you receive 322.5xp when you chop away from an item of ivy, and even though you aren't getting anything but parrots nests, it can be worth the cost over time. Varrock will be your best option to chop but usually its crowded at top instances!2.
