Wrapped - simplicity 2603

This year I'm wrapped in the cardi-wrap that many sewers did last year. So here's my version.
 

I chose to make view A with a soft cotton/spandex burgundy piece that I've had for over two years. The original fabric that was supposed to be used was a marle grey but I felt that I needed a wrap with colour. I've not adjusted the pattern and I've used M size. Next time I'll use S size. Normally on the shoulder seam I would use 'seams great' for stability but I couldn't figure out where this would be. The centre back neck gathers are sewn with swimwear elastic so the gathers are even. So I've figured out a couple of ways to wear it and I know there are more...

 

The top is view E from the same pattern. I've done small pleats on the front neckline instead of the gathers. There wasn't enough fabric to make the gathers a feature on this striped knit.
The jean were store bought. I've yet to attempt making jeans.

Great cardi and top and that colour looks great on you.

I can see a jeans workshop coming along.

very cute! I like the fact that you went with color. It was the perfect choice

i can't wait for simplicity to go on sale at JoAnn's so I can snatch up this pattern.

We sorely need a JoAnn's in Australia.

All of these pieces look so wonderful on you! The burgundy color really suits you. The green dress is so polished.
