McCall’s t-shirt in white stuff
Turns out there wasn’t quite enough fabric in a flecked white knit remnant to make this whole top, A, (pink) with the very gathered sleeves, or even shorter gathered sleeves.
But. The fit of this top is amazing. So’s the scoop neck.
I wondered, could I lengthen the sleeveless shoulders into cap sleeves, and skip the added sleeve?
I made a few other alterations. Added several inches to the bottom, taking the length as far as the fabric would go. And instead of trying a narrow hem at the top, I took a lesson from this McCall’s tunic neck and cut a band with a raw edge to attach.
Sewed it in, finished the seam, pressed in place, topstitched on the right side.
Fabric’s from the Vogue Fabrics warehouse sale in December 2010. Don’t know what I paid for the chunk by itself since I walked out with a pile @$3.00/pound.
Alas, I don’t think this bit had a tag. So I don’t know what it is, where it’s from or how to get more.
