Simplicity 3751

I finally completed "the shirt," view F from Simplicity 3751. Granted it took me practically all day today, but I learned a lot. Sewing another one of these or something similar will be a snap now that I've figured out the meaning of the instructions and how it pieces together.

I do regret not altering the pattern to make the top longer. Voluminous styles like this tend to stick out like a trapeze top on me because of my chest. On longer tops I can belt it to show that no, I'm not quite the size of a mini-van, but this shirt is just too short for me to do that. Darn.

Your sewing projects all look great by the way! I've actually made the Simplicity 3751 top too. If it makes you feel better, I had the same problems with it and I've been sewing since I was 10. More length and a belt will definitely help. Keep trying.
