Happy Friday Everyone,
I hope you are all having a wonderful day! This review is dedicated to McCall’s M7389. What a great pattern, to be very honest I wasn’t sure I could pull this one off, because of the alternation. I’ve become more adventurous now with my sewing and don’t fear making a mistake. Instead I focus on lesson learned, and how to improve future projects.
I knew instantly that I wanted this pattern (version D) to be made with the floral fabric and have the drape portion be a solid color. The problem was, I didn’t quit know how to translate it on the pattern.
I just ended up making a copy of the front & back overlay pattern piece, placed it on my body and marked where the drape began.
Then I made a straight line and cut the traced pattern piece (top to bottom and noted that 5/8 inch seam allowance was needed).
The solid lilac was used for the draped have of the pattern piece and floral for the rest of the pattern.
Because I forgot my initial plan with the drape being a different color, I ended up cutting that entire piece with the floral fabric and didn’t have enough to use for the yoke. As you can see I ended-up using the lilac for the yoke. I think it turned all well.
The instruction were very clear in my option, also because it was fairly light weight, I used my floral fabric for the lining. I would differently make this top again and try the other versions. I’m getting major Antropologie vibes from it.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!
