This will be my first "Over The Top" top. I'm participating in Faye's Over the Top Challenge. This is McCalls 6124, view A.
I attempted to make a blouse using this fabric and it was an epic fail, I cut a generous size 12 and it was way to small. I even tried to gift it to a tiny co-worker and it didn't fit her, I can't remember the pattern but it's noted in my database so I won't make that mistake again. This blouse was pretty quick and easy and best of all it fits. I still have to add the buttons/button holes.
I organized my crochet and knitting mags, they were driving me crazy stacked on my dresser. A co-worker shared this with me so I thought I would share. It's very simple but I didn't think of it until she showed me.
I got the magazine sleeves from Staples and the binders were free from work. Now they're all labeled and put away. I also got a dolly for my many bins of fabric, it makes it so much easier to just roll them out of my storage closet.
Here's the khaki version of McCalls 5523, view B again. Came out great, I even got the zipper on the left side, in the black I inserted it on the right side.
I lined it with this sunny yellow.
Which matched the RTW blouse I wore with it, too bad nobody knew but me.
I also added 1 inch elastic to the back which helps the waistband to lay flat.
I hope everyone had a great weekend.
