Summer has gone and in some areas leaves are starting to turn beautiful colors. Not the case in my area...weather is still warm and sunshiny! It’s so hard not to work on summer attire when it’s this warm! I really didn’t get much sewing done during the summer, so as long as it’s still warm, why not?!!
This post is about a cute top I was inspired to create after seeing a similar version on YouTube. I truly fell in love with this adorable little top! It was pretty easy to recreate too...I started with McCalls 2158.
I used version B and only needed three pattern pieces. Back, front and sleeve. I modified the top as shown below and I shortened the body pieces to accommodate the shorter length of the overall top.
I know there are so many other patterns for this “off the shoulder” style, but I really like challenging myself and it was extremely quick to make! Either way, it worked and I truly love this cute little top!
I know I’ll have a few more occasions to wear this top before packing it away for next year! There was only one thing I noticed that bothered me while wearing...the elastic on the shoulders tended to roll to the inside. That was from me having to pull the top down whenever I raised my arms!! I will definitely figure out a solution for the next one...and there will be another!
How do you challenge yourself with projects you’re working on? I’d love to hear about your processes!!
