Waiting and Waiting

My sewing has basically been put on hold for one simple thing, interfacing. I have tried for the past four weekends to get down to the souk but life with a large family,things just happen. So  have decided to move on for now from Simplicity 2473, but I hope to get back to it real soon since I do not want this to stay as a UFO for long.
On another note, Patternreview has finally posted the contest for next year, and I THINK
I will be participating in the very first contest of the year. From Jan.1 to 31 the OPML (one pattern, many looks) will be taking place and I THINK I’m in for this one. Once again I’ll be using a top pattern, as of right now I THINK I’ll be using Simplicity 2614. I’m really loving the patterns that already come with the different cup sizes, it just make fitting a bit easier for me even though I’m still figuring out which size is the best for me. 
As of this post there are 50 reviews of this pattern and for the most part the all of them seem to be positive reviews, so I’m hopeful.
My aim is to make seven different tops, one for each day of the week, but my goal is three. I already have a few ideas swirling in my head and all have a RTW top as its starting inspiration. So stay tuned for that. I have 8 days until the start, so I’ll be muslining (I know that is not a real word or verb for that matter) and trying to find fabrics in my small fabric collection. So stay  tuned.

Until next time, happy sewing…

The right interfacing can make or break an outfit - worth waiting for, as long as you don't have to wait toooo long!
Love the pattern for the contest - 3 tops from this would be a great addition to any wardrobe...J

That looks like a great pattern to try!

I also love my version of S2614. Bear in mind that the shoulder seam sits toward the front and there is a lot of gathering! Also, the sleeve is puffier than it appears in the photo/line drawing.

I applaud your effort in making seven tops! I'll be following your progress with interest.
