Simplicity - 2603 Misses Knit Top and Cardi-Wrap
This review is for View E, the cami top, but I have added the sleeves from View B, the cardi wrap. I have made this top before when I was a bit thinner but I cut it too short so this remake was much wanted as I love this top.

About Me

I've sewn since I got married but it's only in the last 10 years that I've seriously got into fitting. Now it's a bit of an addiction. I mostly sew knits with the odd woven thrown in for good measure. more
