McCall's 7284 Take Two
After my last effort at McCall's 7284, I was keen to try again but with improvements. Yes, I do like the first version but me being me, I am often not satisfied until I create the perfect top. My lovely silk one is a little tight across the back when I reach forward so this time I decided to try a different view. So as not to waste any fabric, I found a piece of crepe like fabric that had been donated to me by my mother and fortuitously it matched the leftovers of my Liberty blouse perfectly. The dusty pink of the crepe is not entirely a flattering colour on my skin tone so matching it up with the Liberty mean't I could actually use this fabric. It is a good job that I didn't part with it like I was tempted to do.
the same as my previous version. The Liberty is lovely to work with and the top turned out beautifully. I cut the front and back yokes in my Liberty fabric as well as both the sleeve and neck bindings.
