Butterick 6378 and McCall's 7543

Combining two patterns to make one great look is how my top came to be.

I started with Butterick 6378, which I have made a few times before and love the fit.   Now, I wanted to change up the sleeves a bit and McCall's 7543 was just what I wanted.  McCall's 7543 is a very cute shirt but I knew I wouldn't wear the off the shoulder look as often as a more traditional look.

I took the sleeve pattern pieces from the McCall's pattern and the sleeve patterns from the Butterick pattern.  Tracing the sleeve head and using the two piece tie sleeve for the rest.  


Here is a couple of close up of the tie sleeves

My fabric came from IndieSew and I love this gingham so much.  This fabric was great to work with and I have just a bit left.  I am thinking about what I can make with that bit of extra.

Here is the back of the top.

I am sure this will be a well-loved shirt and well-worn, I am so happy how it turned out.

  1. I really like this shirt. I think it is a lot more wearable than an off-the-shoulder shirt, as pretty as those are. It looks great with your bright yellow pants!
