I think I'm going to use this pattern. I can't decide if I want to do the backless dress or apron tank top. Smiley

I'd love to do a sew along with that pattern!  Do you know if that is a current (in stores) pattern or if you can only get it online?

It is current -- came out with the last Simplicity book

I think I'm going to use this pattern. I can't decide if I want to do the backless dress or apron tank top. Smiley

I think I will start with H the backless dress

I have some other projects just about finished.  And cut the pattern out at lunch time.  I will need to make some adjustments to the pattern & then I am ready to cut.   Grin  Grin

If any one needs the link to the Simplicity pattern here it is:  http://simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=3807  I found a pattern in my stash that is a plus size I think I am going to try first and go from there.  I just need to get my butt moving  Cheesy

OO oo oo!!  I just sewed up Simplicity's 3807 this past weekend!  I made view G, the one with contrasting colors and the longer skirt.  I'll have to write up a pattern review sometime, but it came together beautifully.  Very simple pattern--just remember to go off the finished garmet's measurements, not the sizes--it will save you much grief!

I have made 2 of these tops from the sew simple magazine. The 1st one was from a vintage indian beadspread, and the 2nd one from quilters type cottons. I am a 44 d and the large size was to big.

Edited because I finally found an active link to the pattern pieces and got them to download.  Yay!

Now I'm wondering if anyone has made the dress?  I'm trying to figure out what the deal is with the grommet placement.   Huh   Or is that for a drawstring on the skirt maybe?  Also, the dress directions say to cut 2 casings... I figure the casing must go in the back of the skirt below the opening to cinch in the waist, but why 2 casings? 

Dyabolica, your tops are gorgeous!  The bedspread one is especially  awesome!

  I made the dress but already gifted it and damn if I can find the pic now. The grommet is for the drawstring on the skirt and has nothing to do with the dress. The 2 casings are sewn to the back skirt panel on the dress, so you can adjust the way it fits.
  The bedspread one is my favorite and its too big so I can't wear it. I need to ebay or do a swap. Luckily I still have alot of the bedspread left, to ,make another.
