Simplicity 8982 Misses’ Top
This pattern is so popular right now and I absolutely love it. I made the top and skirt first, but the skirt is not my style. I am thinking I need to shorten it and peg the bottom a little more to make it more of a pencil skirt look. The skirt was an easy sew, it just not the style I wear.
I have made view A the dress and in the process of making View A with the sleeves from view C. This may be my new TNT pattern, oh the possibilities with this one.
I styled my make, View C, with my favorite white jeans and a pair of riding boots.
I love how this top lays right above the pockets on the back of my pants. It’s not too long and not too short, it’s just right.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it did, but the skirt didn’t fit my body type, but that’s not anything with the pattern. I love the skirt just not on me.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes very easy to follow. I have started a dress and didn’t need the instructions to start it.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The whole pattern. The easy of instructions and the possibilities that are there to make other options. The joy of mix and match.
Fabric Used: Cotton knit, found at WalMart for $5.00 per yard.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None, but I am going to alter the skirt, shorten it and peg the bottom.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I made a dress and am making another one with sleeve variations.
Conclusion: I love this pattern and more than likely you will see more of this make from me.
