Just a little sewing

An oldie but a goodie, this is McCalls 5662, view F. This first time I made this pattern I made view C and noticed too late that the back was low cut, I like this version much better. Didn't have enough fabric to cut the front and back on the fold so there's a front and back seam but I still like it alot. The fabric is from my Wal-Mart stash, I think it was .50/yd.


Since this fabric is so thin I lined the bodice with my favorite--knit tricot.


I used my double needle on the neckline, sleeve and hem.

I also finished another pair of Butterick 5221, these are black linen. Wanted to show my RTW waistband trick, I put elastic in the back which allows for a snug but comfortable fit.



They're basic black and don't photograph well but you get the idea, this is my third pair so I guess it makes it a TNT pattern.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Vogue pattern giveaway I hope to have them in the mail this week.

Happy Sewing.

Cute top and like the idea of elastic in the back of the waist band.

I love the sleeves and the neckline. I just love kimono style tops and dresses

I've been going crazy with knit tricot as lining. I recently bought 35 yards at Walmart. Let me know if you need any.

Lovely top, Tanya.

Nice drape on the top. I was wondering what type of dress form do you use. I am looking at getting one. The one I am interested in is at Joanns and has not had good reviews.
