This top will definitely be repeated here again in some type of jewel tone for my vacation!! I really love McCalls pattern 6359 for a vacation top or just an all around casual top for running errands and hanging out!! It's super easy to make and oh so quick!
I made View A (the orange one) and no alterations were needed to make this pattern fit, it was perfect straight out of the envelope! Although, there was one thing kind of "funky" with the instructions, Step 7 has you to sew the straps to the sides of the back. When I originally did this, I noticed the back would "gape" out from my back and I really didn't like that!! I took it apart and resewed the straps coming out of the top of the back instead, that worked, it layed flat as it should. Not sure why they did that because on View B (the print, which looks the same in the back) they don't have you sew the straps that way...who knows!!
I used a pastel beige colored Bamboo knit from Fabric Mart. This is another favorite knit...feels oh so comfortable on! Washes and drys beautifully too! This pattern has quite a few sizes...Misses 6 to 14 and Women's 18W to 24W. I made my usual size 10.
