McCalls M7093 Chambray

Hello chums,

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 . 7093

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….

The neckline seems lower on the pattern envelope model. I thought my collarbones would be showing but they dont.

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,

Hila

  1. Nah, it doesn’t read too much like scrubs, especially with some jewelry. I really like it! I must pick up this pattern… those angled lines at the front have me all heart eyes!

  2. Looks like a cool and comfy top – you don’t look quite as happy in your photos as you normally do though so maybe you’re not 100% sure yet.
    As for getting old, wait until your eldest has just left university :/

  3. I think the seaming & pockets keep it from looking like scrubs. I’m very curious to see a version with some colorblocking. It seems like this pattern lends itself way to that technique!
