Hi everyone, this week I made a short suit using Simplicity 8635. The weather has been blazing hot, so I knew this d.i.y would be perfect to keep cool. I acquired 2 yards of floral print Chambray fabric at Hobby Lobby on sale for 2.99 a yard (Great Deal!!). Its the same fabric I used for the Three Piece D.I.Y. Also, I purchase one 7 inch invisible Zipper, two spools of thread and interfacing. This is the second short suit I’ve sewn from Simplicity Pattern Company and it was very easy. What I love about this pattern is the style and the four options I can choose. For my garment I chose to mix the patterns up a bit and used view C top and view D bottom. View C top has 6 loops in the back to hold the straps, I originally put all three loops but removed the two middle.
So now I have 4 loops at the back, and its a little easier to get in and out of this short suit. I don’t think i’ll be sewing this pattern with the loops again its kind of difficult to to remove for a quick bathroom break. That’s a no no for me, I like clothing that are easy to wear and don’t complicate my life. Next time I make this short suit ,I’ll sew back views A, B and D, not C so I wont have any issues taking this garment off. Additionally I top-stitched around the edge of my short suit with yellow thread, so that the yellow in the chambray fabric stand out more. I love this short suit pattern its perfect for Summer. Here is my version of Simplicity 8635.
