Its summer holidays and I have not a care in the world right now. Trying my best to plan for a fantastic holiday. In September my oldest starts high school while my 3rd starts reception! Oh my I am getting old!
Anyhow, here is a cute top I made in the most delicious lightweight chambray fabric. I have used this chambray before to make a sleeveless Granville shirt here (I believe I messed up the sleeves while attempting a placket so it had to be sleeveless). This fabric is such a pleasure to hold and work with. Its sews beautifully and takes the iron well.
When I picked up M7093 during a McCalls sale I knew it was going to be made in the chambray .
Construction wise its super quick make. I went for the version with the pockets. I cut size 12 and made no alterations.
The armholes and neckline are finished using bias binding. I made the bias binding from the chambray.
Seams were finished with the overlocker but this top would look great (on inside~) with a french seam finish but alas patience is a virtue I am yet to learn.
I was really excited about this make until I tried it on for the first time and thought I looked a bit like I am wearing hospital scrubs?…..Pictures….
Verdict – Its a nice top. I get points for actually making something in a solid colour right? Even if it is blue :-). I will definitely be making another one – next time I’d like to try and colour block and maybe lower that front neckline a smidge.
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the interwebs and until next time – Happy Sewing!
Peace and Love,
