LauraKbytheBay LauraKbytheBay writes: The first outfit I would make would be view C Tunic and view D Slim Pants. I would use a medium-weight linen-type fabric with a floral print similar to the multi-blue/green shown on the pattern package. Pattern 10-18 is my size and will be used to make several outfits. Thank you for making this combination of outfits available in one pattern packet. I'm sure I will make multiple outfits with this pattern as it flatters most figures and is perfect for the warmer weather we have in the South.

toniajfuller toniajfuller writes: I need clothing so badly and would utilize this pattern to the fullest.I would start with the tunic and skirt and then add pants and dress. The style is classic. I am thinking a linen look fabric tunic and pant, print skirt, solid dress and a print dress. I have fabric that I have hoarded and I think this would be a perfect fit for the use.
Size 10-18. Thank you for this opportunity.

putittogether putittogether writes: Size 10-18 please. Top C pants D. Thought I knew what fabric I wanted. However, after reading the comments on all the many fabric types & colors, I'll need to take the pattern to the store and do lots of drooling. I've not done princess seams with a fabric pattern; only in solids. Does the seam "throw" the print off....do you have to match each section (not talking about a plaid)? This pattern can so easily be made for dress or casual. Loving it, thanks.

This would be a great pattern to make a few skirts and tops to wear to dinner with friends. Still comfortable but not so casual. If I am lucky enough to win the pattern I would like the 10 - 18 please.

patriciaphillips patriciaphillips writes: I think that I would make view C & D, in a size 18 but I would put sleeves in the top. I'd make the pants out of a stretch woven, dark for the pants and a solid for the top, maybe in a purple. The detail would be the same fabric as the pants. Who knows, maybe all the same colour with chain detail on the top instead of the tabs.

Whisper Whisper writes: I would love to make this dress in a beautiful cotton pique that I have in my stash. I've been saving it for something special. I would make a contrasting trim around the neck. I love skirts, but there is not a large selection in the stores. I would make several of these skirts in various fabrics. I would make the tunic in chambray and the pants in a co-ordinating denim. I love that the skirt and pants are band-less. Also, the dress & top would be easy to alter to fit in the bust. I use size 10-18.

I would make top C -- i have a stash of good cotton fabric to choose from, so I might make two or three : ). One particular cotton i like is a white based color splashed one, it looks like someone took bright colors and threw them randomly on a canvas. It would make a beautiful top. I would need size 10-18.

Vernelle Vernelle writes: It's been a long, long time since I've seen a pattern that I liked enough to really want to go after. This one is definitely an exception. I would start by making the sleeveless top and then follow up with the slacks. No doubt, within a few months, I would make every single one of the pieces using different fabrics. The dress would be ideal for work or church. Size 10-18.

WinterBull WinterBull writes: I would love that pattern in sizes 10-18. I would shorten the sleeved dress to use as a top and use it with the skirt. Both would be in a lovely linen for a lively casual work ensemble. I would make the knee length dress in a work to evening brocade - not too dressy! Top B with the pants would be fabulous, with the top in a wonderful chambray print and the 2 pair of pants in a matching seersucker and contrasting chambray. I could then also take the top C in a patchwork print, perhaps and make it into a front open vest lengthening the 2 side bands to catch in the center as a closure to wear over top of a simple T top or long sleeve knit top for those days inside when a sweater is too much and the tshirt is not enough. Just dreaming!

LeslieG78 LeslieG78 writes: This pattern looks fantastic! I would love to make parts B and E, which would be a great duo for work attire. For B, I would choose a nice poplin or linen, and I would go with a tweed for E. The tweed might have a nice pattern, with B complimenting the pattern through it's structure and color. Size 10-18, please!

ArcticSewer ArcticSewer writes: Hi. I would make the pants in a stretch satin cotton, black with big white polka dots, yippee! I also really like the retro dress; I have a lovely plum floral linen that would work for that. I like both the tunics views B and C and can see them in a print cotton damask. I have to say that the skirt to wear with these tunics would be best as a simple (no pleats) pencil skirt; That would be my preference. I haven't sewn Simplicity for 30 years but think the smaller size would be best for me.

I would make the tunic (view C) first, but with the sleeves from the dress pattern added, followed by the slacks (view D) both in either a light weight linnen or cotton, as heavy weight fabrics can rarely be used in garments here due to the near constant warmth here in the deep south, USA. I might not stop there though. I find the dress also very attractive, though it's been a very long time since I regularly wore dresses...
