Simplicity 3835

Friday, April 29, 2011


For those of you who know me in person, or through Flickr, it's no secret one of my favorite patterns is, Built By Wendy 3835.
I love that there's no set in sleeves and that any neckline puckers are hidden once the elastic is inserted. What I love most is the range of fabrics this pattern can accommodate.
I've made this shirt in; quilting weight cotton, heavy yarn dyed cotton, voile, cotton lawn...and it's turned out perfectly every time....well perfect for my amateur seamstress expectations.
For anyone considering this pattern, my one tip is to make the arms larger. I make the shirt in a 14 throughout the body and then add size 20 (yes 20) arms. I also love this pattern without the arm elastic, but the elastic looks super cute too!
Above you will find my most recent 3835 creation, made of Liberty of London Cotton lawn.
Have a happy day <3,
