Happy Friday Everyone,
During the month of may I completed this lovely off-Shoulder blouse from McCalls and shared in my monthly round up video on YouTube. The pattern is a few years old, but nonetheless it’s a good one. It’s very feminine and on
trend at the moment.
I would class this as a fairly simple design, it was cut in a size 12 and no alterations were done. The only thing I can point out to a beginner, is the elasticized waist. It would be the only step that would give the “I’m scared moment”.
Overall this was a joy to sew, it only took me about 2 hours
from start to finish. The instructions are on point, so not a lot to stress
about there. The fabric is yet another gifted piece from my mom, and its light
weight with some body, so it can fold a instruction.
I love the color of this
top, a lush pink, bark brown, & moss green. Since this colorway is more on
the lighter side, it would pair nicely with a grey pencil skirt, darker denim
in wide or bell bottomed.
The outfit below is so chic, I would swap the camel belt for some sort of rose shade to match the McCall’s blouse and add a neutral wedge shoe for the summer.
The below jeans are just the right option for the off shoulder blouse as it will balance out my frame and I’ll look less boxy. I felt my current jeans left me looking rectangular :)
