Simplicity 1613 and my moms mother's day dress!

Simplicity 1613 paired with V8711

 Happy Mother's day weekend to everyone who bares the title one of life's greatest jobs! I have started my celebration early, with fabric shopping of course,lol! I stopped by Hancock's yesterday and picked up a few Buttericks, but boo, they didn't have the new ones in yet! Okay, so I know that said that I was going to possibly make S3503, but you see S1613 was calling my name,lol! Simplicity 1613 is such a fun pattern, with plenty of choices to chose from:

I made view D, but without the armband things, not
sure what those would be called :)

Yes, I am slightly addicted to
black and white stripes, lol!

  This top comes together so quickly, and is just what is needed right now, seeing that life has been so hectic for me lately. I added an 1" to the front and back pieces. I used the elastic;however, I need to go back in and make it a touch longer, to stop it from bunching up a bit. I'm glad to have finally gotten this pattern made up, as it's such a cute pattern.. I planned to wear it to lunch today, to kick off my Mother's day weekend. And speaking of Mother's day, my mama received her dress this week, and she loves it! 
I made M6559 for my mama again, the pattern was prepped and
it was a quick and easy sew!

                                               Well, ladies I hope you have a great weekend!
