Style Tip: This is a great set to mix and match. Make the pieces from coordinating, versatile colors.

This review was originally featured in Threads #155 (June/July 2011).

Simplicity 2345

This wardrobe made from simple shapes consists of a dress, blouse, pant, jacket, and a bonus belt with 3-D flower embellishments. The dress, with a knit bodice and woven skirt, offers the comfort of separates with the convenience of a dress. The side-zip entry gives the silhouette clean lines. Great sewing tips are spread throughout. The cowl neckline is flattering worn alone or layered under a jacket. Topping the ensemble is a cropped-length jacket with a portrait collar and half sleeves ending slightly below the elbow. The jacket’s wide, V-shaped neckline frames the layer underneath perfectly. To preserve the focal neckline drape, very lightweight knits are recommended. All the pieces are easy to make and ideal for any sewer.

(Sized Misses’/Miss Petite 8-24 for busts 31.5-46 in. and hips 33.5-48 in.)

[for top and dress bodice only]

Style Tip: This is a great set to mix and match. Make the pieces from coordinating, versatile colors.
