FO Simplicity 2596



I made a top for my Mother, Kwacha. She has been watching baby Nilah for me since I have gone back to work. The pattern is Simplicity 2596, which I made for myself sometime last year. This is a simple yoke top with bust gathers. I think Kwacha looks gorgeous in this carefree top. Perfect for her Caribbean cruise next week!



I am still working on my muslin for the 1940s "swing dress" from Sense & Sensibility. I have to go up a size, so I'm back to tracing and cutting out the bodice. Here's to hoping this will be a perfect fit, since the fabric is scheduled to come tomorrow!

What a stylish mother you have! I used to sew for mine, too, and always got a lot of pleasure doing something for her.

Your mom looks great! (I agree with the above commenter that you clearly have great genes. :) ) The top is lovely and she looks fantastic in it.
