Sunny Day to All,
This year has already been so much better than 2018. I have already made several posts on my blog meaning that I have been sewing much more than usual. Having a demanding full time job does not allow me to be as creative as I would like. However, I am determined to get better at this. The dedication is there, I just need to keep pushing.
One of my goals for 2019 is to build my wardrobe one garment at a time. I have always concentrated on making outfits for the many events I get invited to. This year, I am trying something a little different. The month of March is dedicated to making separates. This will allow me to wear them more often on a daily basis. This top was made using McCall 7621. I used this beautiful sweater knit and it came out perfect. I can see myself wearing this to run my errands on a regular Saturday. Let's say I plan on wearing this throughout the remainder of winter and throughout the spring. I paired it with some Old Navy Jeans and my lace up chunky heels boots (those are old). Enjoy these few pics!
About the Pattern
This pattern was originally a dress. Since my March 2019 is dedicated to making separates, I altered the pattern by just making a shorter version. It is very easy and extremely quick to make. I made View A and cut size medium. By the way, I wear a 6 in regular clothing size. The only reason why I would hesitate to refer this pattern to a beginner is because of the Turtle/Vneck part. It can be a little tricky for a beginner but with patience, it can be done. I had to take my time to get it right. It came out perfect. I would definitely make this again as a dress very soon.
