I used to hate cold weather, but now that I’m getting older I have anew found love for being cool.

Simplicity 9757 Misses’ Knit Top and Skirt in Two Lengths
My first thought when I saw this pattern, oh that’s cute, but I could never wear that. Then I thought I can wear whatever I want and I did just that.
I love the way it came out and I love the fabric choice I made.
Pattern Description: Misses’ Knit top and Skirt in Two Lengths
Pattern Sizing: Small – XXLarge. I cut a medium.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes it looked just like the pattern envelope when completed.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, the instructions were easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked that it was a quick and easy make. I didn’t really like the elastic on the side, I cut View D, for the skirt. Once it was in and I tried it on, I still wasn’t a fan of the elastic. I will make the longer version when I make the next one, yes there will be a next make.
Fabric Used: This is a two-way stretch, that I think I found at Walmart, I can’t remember, it’s either there or Jo-ann’s as there aren’t any other fabric stores close to me.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No alterations needed for this pattern. I made the short version, which I wasn’t so sure about, but when I measured it and compared it to my body measurements, the length was just where I wanted it to be, at the waistline, but not showing too much skin.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I am already planning to make it again, in the longer skirt version View C. I highly recommend it others for a quick, cute summer outfit.
Until next time, sew something!!!
