McCall's 6928- Stripe Shirting

McCall's 6928 stripe sleeveless top, using Mood Fabrics' stripe shirting.
My idea for this fabric was a blouse of some kind, probably an Archer when I placed my order at Mood Fabrics.  A phone call from Mood stating there was only 1.25 yards changed my plans on the pattern but did not change wanting the fabric.  With the limited yardage, I knew just which pattern I wanted to make, McCall's 6928.  

The stripe tank top has been on my list for quite a while, you all know I love a good stripe!  This orange shirting was just perfect for the stripes.  The shirting might be a bit stiff for this style but I am okay with that.  It will soften with time.

I made one major change, instead of having the bias at the neck and arms show, I turned it under.  I should have widen the width of the shoulders for this adjustment.  They are a bit narrow but I just wasn't thinking.

It is a fun, quick top.  Perfect to help the wardrobe the last few weeks of summer.  I am so hard on my summer clothes.  A description for me, dirt and stain magnet!  I always need a few new things to refresh the wardrobe come August.  Plus in Missouri it can stay pretty warm through September and even in October we can get some hot days.

This top will look nice layered for fall, too.  I  added 1" to the length and went down a size at the hips.  The top flared out and in a drapey fabric that would have been find.  This shirting just wanted to stay away from the body too much.

If you haven't given McCall's 6928 a try, it is a great pattern. Sarah from Goodbye Valentino made a beautiful one with the bow front

  1. You look wonderful wearing this shirt. To me, the fabric does not look stiff and the shoulder width is fine.

  2. What an adorable top! I would never have given that view a second glance but your top is so inspiring.

  3. it looks great - lovely colours on you, and yes, I'm sure the fabric will soften over time.

    So funny to hear you are a stain magnet - so am I! These days I cover myself with wads of napkins to eat if I'm wearing something nice; I've put tricky food stains on too too many clothes :(.

  4. Will be a great layering top for the cooler weather. A jean jacket will look great over it.
