Year of the Sleeve - McCall's 7542

Mood Fabrics' Cotton dotted Voile for McCall's 7542

The sleeve for Spring 2017 seems to be the trend to have and I am jumping right onto that trend with both feet arms (in this case).  I just want so many of these looks and styles, which means I will be busy sewing statement sleeves all summer long.  For this look, I went with Mood Fabrics’ Dotted Cotton Voile (sold out) but there are several Mood Fabrics’ Voiles in stock or you can look at Mood Fabrics’ Dotted Swiss for the texture of my blouse.  On another note, Amy used this same fabric for a blouse she made for Mood Sewing Network.

Simplicity 8341

A Mimi G pattern, Simplicity 8341, made as a top with Style Maker Fabrics' rayon twill.

Can you absolutely love a garment?  Well, if you can this one ranks right up there. It started with the great pattern which actually took much longer than I ever expected.  The end result is a garment that I love so much more than I ever expected!
