- Many commenters asked the same questions as Summerset, "When you're done with this wardrobe, are you going to post pictures of you in the outfits/pieces?"

Pattern: Simplicity 3887
Size: S3887 comes in sizes 8 to 24 - I made size 8.
Fabric: Teal and caramel paisley from Fabricland.
Comments: This is item number five completed in my fall/winter SWAP.
I absolutely adore this fabric, as I have a special place in my heart for paisley prints. So, when I saw it at my local fabric store, I scooped up two metres without having a plan for it. I had used S3887 before and really liked the results. So, I decided to use it again, but this time I made the long sleeved version. As was my previous experience with this pattern, everything went together smoothly to produce a cute, trendy top.
Conclusion: I really like the match of fabric and pattern in this garment (although the photo doesn't really do either one justice). This will be a wonderful addition to my work wardrobe.
