Sorry about the wrinkles! I wore this to Easter dinner at my parent's home which is about 40 miles away.
So here is the pattern I used (McCall's 7357):
And, here's the description: Loose-fitting, pullover tops have neck band, self-lined yokes, applied tab, side-front and side-back seams, three-piece sleeves, shaped hemline, and narrow hem. A: Short sleeves and contrast panels. A, B: Stitched hem on sleeves. B: Three-quarter length sleeves, and front sleeve and side slits. C: Purchased trim. C, D: Long sleeves gathered into binding.
Includes separate pattern pieces for A/B, C and D cup sizes.What? Separate cup sizes? SCORE!
So I made a mis-mash of B and D. I used the length of D and the slight bell sleeve of B with the 3/4 length.
This can go together really quick, despite the many pattern pieces! I however made it more time-consuming by using french seams almost everywhere and also applying the minty green rick-rack on the front and along the sleeve seams. I really like the trim!
The instructions for this are very good and despite using this colorful fabric that shifted everywhere, I am very happy with my results! I wore it today and received many compliments! Don't you love that?
My only very minor complaint regarding this top is the narrowness of the sleeves. If you typically make an adjustment for full biceps or arms, you'll want to do that here as well. In fact, you'll most likely want to pin the tissue together and see if the sleeve will fit over your arm at all.
I love this top! The fabric is from Hancock's. Isn't it just so pretty, and doesn't it scream happy spring?
Thanks for reading!
