FO - Simplicity 2418 & Clover 3.0


Yes, I have made three clovers in one week. I plan on making several more. I have the fit down to where I like it and think it lends itself to both work and play. This clover version is paired with my new Simplicity 2418 top. I am one happy camper. The outfit is very slimming without compromising comfort. The ankle length looks great with my new 5" Mary Janes to boot.


Stats:

Simplicity 2418 top:
I made a size 14 with zero alterations. The material is a lightweight polyester. Since it is cut on the bias, it has a nice drape. I made the belt extra long.

Clover pants:
I made a straight size 8, reducing the crotch depth by 3/4", adding 3 1/2" at the length mark, and moving the zipper to the back. This version has the front, waistband pockets in a black voille fabric. The pants are made out of a stretch suiting that has some nubby texture to it, which I love.

Up next....another Clover. Yup, I'm hooked. lol
