Simplicity 8325

“easy cut – easy sew” according to the envelope. It really was. I could have finished this in one sitting if I had just tried to. The spring cleaning/house purge is on since I will be having major house guests in May. While we were home before Christmas I did my uncle the service of culling through my aunt’s voluminous stash of fabrics, patterns and ephemera and came home with some real winners. This is the first one I have knuckled down and sewn and I can almost guarantee I will be making more. The pocket was a last minute addition, since I have noticed that we have entered the “treasure collection” phase of her life. I swear, if I wash one more pocket full of stones I will break the washer. Maybe some day I will learn to check pockets first?
