another Simplicity 3835

I loved my first go at this pattern, so of course I knew another top would be in my near future! And once I saw this awesome fabric, I had to get some to use for it. It’s Just Dandy Blue Jay Floral Crosshatch-by Robert Kauffman, and I got it from my fabulous sponsor, Ribbon Retreat. Seriously, love this fabric.
I left off the tie this time, and didn’t even get out the directions. I know, what a rebel. I like it with this belt I thrifted a little while ago. My necklace kind of blends in though. I thought I was being all cool, matching my necklace…and then it blends in. eh. 
And just in case you though you’d escaped an awkward pic of my face, nope! gotcha.

  17. Hey I love the fabric choice. You have great taste. I’m always talking myself out of prints. I went to two Joann’s to try to buy this pattern. It must be out of print. So sad :(. If your Joann’s still has it. I will send you shipping if you buy it on the 1.99 sale this weekend. I’m not sure what else I could bribe you with. Freshly baked Chocolate chip cookies?
