Adorable Foxes - Maternity top - Simplicity 5369

Simplicity 5369
In the beginning of the March I had made a run one afternoon to finish this top for this contest on a Romanian forum.  I had to keep my identity secret for a while and then I was to busy with work and the boy to even make a post.
   The pattern was Simplicity 5369 that I bought thinking I will make myself a "ie" - Romanian traditional blouse. The pattern is very simple and easy to do and I had a muslin for it a while back that was a good thing because now I knew I needed to add to ease at the neck line and some length for the extra belly.
The fabric is 100% non stretch cotton for both the siclam and black parts and I added some embroidery band around the neck line and 2 foxes on the belly. They were suppose to look mother and daughter but I don't think I really got that effect. The fox applique is from planetapplique and is a quite nice design.
 I did it all in a rush so I am not 100% pleased with how it looks on me but I am very happy I was able to finish it in time for the contest. I had the fabrics and the pattern traced and stashed for a while and I don't think I would have done it any time soon if not for the added motivation : so big Thanks "LucruDeMana" forum.

 I am also quite pleased with the inside of my blouse. Since my serge machine was in service I went for french seams.
