I had a few ladies who were interested in the pattern I offered on my last post and to be fair, I wrote everyone's name on a piece of paper and had the Hubby draw a name. The winner of McCalls 6243 free pattern is...
Congratulations Candice of Sew My Time! Email me where you want your pattern sent and I will get it out to you right away. Thanks everyone for participating and the great comments!
On another note, I fell in love with this cute little top when I saw it made up by SandraMary on Pattern Review. It's Vogue 8906 and let me tell you the photo on the envelope kills the sale of this really cute pattern!
Thank goodness I saw Sandra's version on pattern review, otherwise I would have never given this pattern a second look or made it and I love this very comfortable and cute little top!
It sews up very quickly and it's so comfortable! I love the pleating in the front and back that cinch the waist giving the top a "peplum" type look. The only alteration I had to make was taking up an additional 1" seam allowance in the shoulder seam to shorten the V-Neck front so it would be work appropriate and I didn't want to wear a cami with it.
The fit is perfect! Don't you think?
I'm sure I will be making this one again! I used a rayon challis in a really cute snake skin print. The colors are a white background with black, brown with a touch of gold. I purchased the fabric from Hancock Fabrics a little while ago, so they may still have it.
If you like this style, it is so worth your while!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
