"V' Cut Out Blouse

11/15/16

I found this fantastic Simplicity pattern S0991 while browsing the pattern drawers at my local Joann's.  What drew me to this pattern the most is the "V" cut out on the front.  I can't get enough of  the cut out trend and thought this would be a great chance to try it out.  I went with the easiest view (View F) because I didn't want to run the chance of making a lot of mistakes, plus I wanted to finish it as quickly as I could.  The neckline snaps in the front and there are also two pleats going down the front.  And..uh...mistakes???  Of course!!  It was so funny when I sewed the pleats.  After placing and ironing the pleats I actually sewed all the way down the crease.  Eeek!  Then I realized the boo-boo that I made, took out my trusty seam ripper and made a mental note about pleats.  Anyway, I'm really happy how this top turned out.  And the material and print worked out great.  I used a woven rayon that I found at Joann's.  I think this top would be great for a night out or a special event.  I paired this top with black skinny jeans and open toe booties.  Also, I tried finding this pattern on the Simplicity website to link it and I couldn't find it. I guess it may be just exclusively sold in stores.

 



Here is the package of the pattern:
