Easy Breezy Tie Strap Top with DIY Circle Skirt

Easy Breezy Tie Strap Top using 

Simplicity Pattern 8386 View C

When it comes to easy, quick sewing projects, I am all for it.  When I came across this Simplicity pattern a few months ago- S8386, I knew there were endless modifications with all 3 views.  I quickly attempted VIEW C using a Muslim jersey knit and loved it.  This top can be modified to create a flirty dress, fun jumpsuit or even a body con midi dress (as seen here made by Erica Bunker).

Top styled with a circle skirt I created a year ago.

Here are the modifications made to create the tie strap:

Made 4 straps (2 inches wide and 22 inches long) and followed the same steps required for the pattern to add the shoulder piece.

Added an inch to the length of the bodice.

Fabric Used: Jersey knit found at a local fabric store.

I love this top –  both the original (as seen below) and  the modified version with the tie straps. 

Do you want to learn how to make it?  Check out Brittanyjjones tutorial on Youtube here.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tune for more pattern reviews on the blog.  ONE LOVE!!
