Hi BEAUTIES! I’m back with a “Miami” inspired outfit look today! So many people are traveling at the moment and whether you’re going somewhere chilly or sunny I thought I’d share some quick and easy pattern inspiration that I absolutely love! Quick bit about myself, I’m really a chill type of girl when it comes to style! Don’t get me wrong I love fashion and all the cool trends but this look is more of a “everyday” outfit for me. If you asked to fit myself into one specific style category I would say comfort AND cute pieces are always my go-to choices, CASUAL/CHIC if you will.
Today’s look is from two Simplicity Patterns, 8177 PANT, 8128 TOP. I reviewed the top pattern for you below, since I have reviewed the 8177 pattern twice before, HERE, and HERE. The run-down on that one is I love the entire pattern contents, I cut a size 10 in the pants and the fabric is a stretch woven from Joann stores. I made no alterations. I’m filming a new Fabric Haul video for my YouTube CHANNEL so I’ll keep today’s post short. Don’t forget to sign-up for notifications of the new magazine launch, SEW SEW DEF! Have a fabulous day, enjoy the outfit and simplicity top review below! See you soon! 😉

Pattern Description: Two piece dress includes top with sleeve & length variations, skirt with waist options allowing you to create a look that shows more, less or no midriff. Choose the top length & skirt waist height that works for you. – SIMPLICITY 8128.
Pattern Sizing: 6 -14, I cut a size 8.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy. This is a no fuss pattern, great for an absolute beginner who wants to learn.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the wide hem, I have never sewn a 3″ hem at the bottom of a crop top but I’m happy with the affect it gives. Also love the cute little tie closure at the back neck! 🙂
Fabric Used: Lightweight denim from JO-ANN FABRIC.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and yes, this top is easy to whip up on days when you want a quick top. I think it would look fabulous in a bold print as well.
