I lied when I said I would not sew anything before Christmas. I just could not stand it one weekend and sewed McCalls 6796. I made this pattern already last year and did not change anything except for the collar. I did not want to make the same collar, but did not like the second collar version that comes with the pattern. First I just added a neckband but this looked just boring. Then I decided to add the collar from an old Burda pattern (Burda 10/2005 No 114) I had sewn some years before.
I cut a size 10 tapering to 12 at the hips. The fabric is again form The Smuggler’sDaughter. As I was short of fabric, I had to piece the sleeves and also the collar. But with this busy fabric it is barely noticeable. There is nothing to say about the construction as this is just an easy pullover top. All seams are serged. Hems are turned under and hemmed with a cover stitch. Here is a picture of the piecing of the back collar:
I wear this easy top nearly everyday together with the Liana Stretch jeans. It fills a gap in my casual wardrobe and goes with nearly everything.
This was a bit of excessive posting in the last days, but now I am done. Yeah!
I wish you all a Happy New Year!
