McCalls 6796

While waiting for some Style Arc blouse patterns I sewed McCalls 6796 pullover top. Originally I had planned for Butterick 5954 , but I did not have enough fabric for that. And I am still unsure if I really like the style. I had totally forgotten about the McCall pattern, but it seemed to be a good substitute. And I really like how it turned out.


I cut a size 10 extending to 12 at the hips. The pattern is described as close-fitting, but is has a lot of ease. However, for a pullover top this is just fine. The only other alteration I made was narrowing the shoulders by 1 cm as I found them a bit too wide.



I was a bit confused how to attach the collar. Firt I thought the instructions were wrong, but of course, they were not. I topstitched the seam to make sure that everything stays were it should.



The fabric I used is a heavy weight cotton knit (“Feinstrick”).

I like the collar and the button detail. This makes the otherwise simple top interesting. All in all easy to sew and easy to wear, this top is a real winner.

  1. Hello, I’ve just found your wonderful blog ( I am not sure how) and I am so impressed with your sewing – your tailored shirt, your refashioned skirt (from trousers made out of embroidery fabric) and I love this top – great idea to make it in sweatshirt fabric.

    I have nominated you for the Blog Hop. If you want to see details of what to do, please visit my blog. I hope you don’t mind 🙂 It is of course, optional.
