Simplicity 3786


This pattern came in my possesion a while ago and I liked both of the looks; the wrap and the pintucks, decided to go for view E ( top right) and used a skirting in very light blue and the combination was not so good....

You might not agree with me ...but it looks a lot what dentists and their nurses wear to work in Sweden but properly styled I might feel different about it.

The pattern is great! it has a lot of reviews on PR and it´s easy to sew. I have plans for view C too ( mid left) and making it longer into a dress in maybee linen.
And if I ever will go to a football game this is what I will wear, the color is the same as the local team shirts or I might wear it to work when they are playing...

if it is cotton, you could always dye it :) I really like the colour and I bet it suits your complextion just fine. Nurses wear white around here :)

Hi Karin, I think this is a really cutsie blouse. Don't listen to Tini and don't dye it - I loooove white (now)! It's summer! :-)

I think I need to style it in a non dentist way and I forgot to write that I used silk thread. I was thinking of a classic mens wear style of shirt first and wanted a really thin thread for the topstitching.
Silk thread is very strong and a joy to sew with!

I really like it. I think I might have this pattern somewhere. I'll have to look.

Ohhh, I just got this pattern! You should see the fabric I have in mind for it - a wild paisley print! Oh wait, you will see it next month! Ha!
