this is my third go at simplicity 3835 (i haven't photographed the second, andthe first is floating about here somewhere). i'm not sure if i like it, or if i look like i'm wearing a curtain. also, the neck facing at the back is such a mess! i need some hooks and eyes to fix it up, and i ended up handsewing quite a bit.

the ties and the neck facing are lined in purple, which looks absolutely awesome, if i say so myself. there's a pic of that on my blog.

Wow that is gorgeous. I love 3835, I've made three aswell!  It's such a versatile pattern, the fabric is gorgeous and the curtain-y look is a good thing, lovely fabric.

Looks great! The only thing I'd do is add a bright colored belt around the middle to break it up and give me some curves.  I really like this, though, and the fabric is great!

ah that looks so good! i love the fabric too.

i have a question for you though, or for anyone else who's used the built by wendy patterns- i've heard they run sort of big, is that true? should i size down?

anyhow, great job!!

It doesn't look like a curtain at all, it looks great. I'd buy it in a store, if I saw it!

I think it's really cute.  I also have this pattern, but I'm afraid to try making the dress. I made the shirt and it came out too small so for now it's sitting on my floor unfinished until I can find someone to give it to.

I've only made one top, and it was big, but I believe it's meant to be blousey, as the top is belted.  I'd look at the finished measurements on the envelope to see if the built in ease is too much, or just right. I ended up taking mine in at the waist, but it fits my boobs which is a very, very hard thing to do with a button up blouse Smiley
