Introducing Spring!

This is the other top that I cut at the same time as this tranquil top.  McCall's 6398 Misses/Women's Tunic that's close-fitted at bust.


 I usually forget to show the inside work, so I decided to let you see how I serge this ITY knit, but I hand hem the sleeves and the bottom hem. I think it makes them lay as flat and neat as I want it.

I created the facings because on the solid colors, I didn't want the topstitching. Notice that like my mom, I make the facings deeper.

This is the first one that I made from this pattern without shortening the length. As much as I like this outfit, I've only worn it once. Now this is a grab and go favorite. Some prints have to be limited to being worn about twice in a season.
It's hard not to keep creating tops from this pattern as I really enjoy wearing them. My husband purchased the first top like this which is beige with brown tones. So, maybe this is the last top from this pattern for this season.

    1. Thanks Debbie! I really do love this pattern. I love color block tops, but I have so many pairs of pants that match the colors in my tops that I can best utilize them in one print.

  2. I love this colorful cheerful top! Beautiful! I see nothing wrong with you using this pattern numerous times. In different fabrics and lengths, it looks like a totally different top each time.

  3. great looking top for spring/summer and I like how you made the facings deeper, it does seem to make the neckline keep its shape better.
