Simplicity 8523

Simplicity 8523 Pattern AND Fabric stash busting.

Pattern Description:


Pullover Top with side slits and neckline variations

Pattern Sizing:

8-12 (been in my stash so long it is not even the right size for me!!)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?


Were the instructions easy to follow?

Very easy

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Very FAST - from opening the envelope to uploading photos of finished garment - 2 hours (including tidying away and hoovering up the mess!)

Fabric Used:

Cotton poplin?

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Made it wider at the hips, forgot to add the side slits (it would fit better if I had included them!!)

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I might sew view A or B with a zip included in the back seam.


This is a very baggy garment - but if it were more fitted a zip would be needed.

Fast and cool for summer but I would like something more fitted and flattering.
