Simplicity Learn to Sew Patterns- Not So Easy!!

One of my former theater peeps, has embarked a new venture- a quality hair salon for kids.  Thus was born Purple Monkey Hair: A Salon for Kids and Kids at Heart!  Since she has an ADORABLE toddler, she asked me to make him a purple monkey costume for the grand opening celebration.  I found a Simplicity Learn to Sew pattern that looked pretty quick and easy, and got to work.

Oh Simplicity, how you let me down!  The instructions were so hard to follow that I can’t believe the pattern is being marketed at “learn to sew.”  I muddled through, but it was REALLY challenging!

Yesterday was the grand opening at the salon, and I  must say that the Purple Monkey was pretty darn adorable!
