Do you follow McCall Pattern Company on Instagram? If not, you should, Meg does the best job inspiring me. Quite frequently, Meg posts a RTW picture and a pattern suggestion, which I love. Friday Fashion, Inspiration, right? My problem is I know I cannot remember all the inspirations and pattern numbers, so I screenshot the Instagram picture. I can reference that screenshot anytime on my phone.
I went with this Mood Fabrics' Cotton Voile and it sews and presses beautifully.
I cut the front and back from what is the border print, squeezed the front yoke and back yoke from the solid navy along one selvage and used the rest for the sleeves.
Here is a photo from Mood of the yardage, so you can get the picture of how this worked
I made a few changes:
I used View A with no ties, slimmed the sleeves and added the curved hem. I tried my top and the straight hem did not do much for the look, so I shortened it by a bit and used the pattern for View D to curve the sides.
I interfaced the front yoke with a tricot interfacing, since I was not adding the ties, I didn't want the yoke to fall forward.
I thought I would like my top but I had no idea how much I love this top, the fit is good, the style is boho and the fabric if fun. It is a trifecta for the win!
