Simplicity 2892: it fits and she loves it!

Yesterday I wrote about violating my own sewing rules (no sewing apparel for others; not sewing on a deadline). I sewed S2892 for a friend, on a 24 hour deadline.  I finished it, she loved it, and it fits!  I was SO excited to see how well it fits her.   It fits her SO well.   It's perfect.  And she was SO appreciative of it too!

Here she is at work today (she wishes to remain anon, hence the headless shots):

She knows from reading my blog, I like the front, side and back shots!

The back of her skirt has cute ruffle detailing, doesn't it???
I think the shirt looks even better than person than it does in the photos.
Also, an addendum to the story:  She said when she opened the box, she thought I gave her my shirt.  But I was wearing my shirt.  And then she thought I actually had 2 of these shirts all along and that I had been keeping one from her!  ha ha!

Also the armholes and hem overall looked fine.   I think I was too close to the project in such a short amount of time.

Her goodbye party was today and her last day at work is tmw morning.  I will miss her.

Be well!!!


  1. Really nice, and it's better by the fact that she likes it!

  2. You did a beautiful job. Don't be surprise if she asks you to make something else for her.

  3. How wonderful. This a great top that you've now made twice.
    At least you picked someone who did appreciate your work.
    I keep my "sewing for other people' list to a minimum and they must appreciate my work.

  4. What a great friend! Thank you for breaking your rule...for me! Hah. Now I don't have to do it myself. I pulled this pattern from my stash to sell, but since seeing your versions, I have now put it back into rotation.

    You can totally copy her skirt with M5523. =)

  5. What a great fit! You must be so proud!

  6. It looks really fab on her! Kudos for being so generous and for sewing it so well!

  7. Looks great. It was very sweet of you to do it and she must be thrilled to have a unique garment.

  8. What a nice going away gift! I hope you swore her to silence...
