I 'm back

I did not realize that my last post was 3 weeks ago!  I feel like I am on a stationary bike and not going anywhere.  Crazy and busy time at work.

I 've done a little sewing.  I completed the Simplicity top and yet to review here or on PR.  I am currently working on McCalls 7542.

I am actually excited about this project.  I love the fabric and purchased it about a year ago from Style Makers Fabrics.  It was Shibori as it does look similar to some shibori projects I have seen.  It is a rayon challis fabric.

Front View
For the back, I chose to add an invisible zipper.  I am not fond of button loops and buttons.  I also don't like hook and eyes much either.

I am going to use the sleeve from View D, the third one down on the left.  I love that this pattern has various cup sizes, no FBA.

I did make my usual FSA and swayback.  I ended up taking 3/4 inch back seam as I am probably a 12 in the back and larger in the front.  This blouse has shoulder dart in the back and I took a deeper dart width and length wise.

I plan to finish this in the next couple of days.  

More later.


  1. Hurry up! I love that fabric, it's so pretty!

  2. Oooh. Like Coco I was scrolling waiting for a finished pic! Hurry up!! :)

    I can't wait to see it.

  3. Ok, you made me look. I love that print so much and think the blouse will just be beautiful.

  4. Neat fabric. Can't wait to see the finished top. I am waiting for the next pattern sale to buy this pattern for myself

  5. Hi Linda, I saw your new top posted on IG (very nice), did you want to submit it to the Tops That Pop Sewalong?
