I went with McCall's 6702 for a sleeveless blouse selecting View A. One of the reasons I purchased this pattern was for the collar and the placket of this pattern. While sewing my top, the pattern had great construction and no buttons for a sleek, simple look. The flared style isn't one I usually wear but for summer I thought it would be a nice style and the voile worked so nicely. This top does run large and I went down a size, cutting a size 10. I think the fit is great through the shoulders and back.
I like the high-low hem for the blouse, which is very gradual on this top. The pattern calls for bias tape to finish the lower edge of the back and the armholes. I used the cotton voile to make bias and it worked perfectly. The upper back is a nice finish on this blouse, two pieces for the yoke. One for the yoke and one for the facing, finishes the top edge of the opening perfectly. I plan on making this sleeveless version again and might taper a bit for a waistline, just not too much or I would loose the ease to get the pullover top on. One more detail on the placket, it is deep but doesn't gape open at all. I believe this is the nice contour designed for the placket piece. The pattern comes straight up from the bottom of the placket, then has a nice gentle curve to shape for front neck edge
I hope your summer is a beautiful one and if it is a bit too hot, sew some voile for a cool summer garment.
I love everything about this fabric, the hand, color, weight. Then the pattern, I love wearing this top but not sure I like how it looks on me. One thing I know for sure, it feels great while wearing it. What about you, do you have clothes you love to wear but don't love how they look on you?
