Modifications on Simplicity 2599

I reviewed this pattern on this post and was pleased with it until I really went to wear it.  Then I knew it was time to change it or get rid of it.  The elasitc just hit in the wront spot, the top needed to be 2" longer to make it look right and then adjust the elastic casing.

I thought about it a bit and remembered some RTW tops Erin has, the elastic is in the hems.  So that is what I did, added 1/8" elastic to the bottom.  I like it much better, looks nicer with a cardigan and now I have a top that I will wear. 

What do you think?  Not the most flattering angle but you get the idea.


  1. I think your elastic hem adjustment works great for this pattern!

  2. I like the idea of an elastic hem, draws the garment in without emphasising the waistline (or in my case, the lack of one!).

  3. Love the looks perfect on you.

  4. It looks great on you!
