A top that really pops

Let’s talk fabric.  The colours in this divine buttery soft cotton from The Cloth Shop caught my eye.  After patting the fabric for a short while, and admiring the lovely drape, I knew that it needed to come home with me.  Actually my biggest decision was which colourway to buy… it came in a bright green too.

I knew that the dartless top from McCall’s 6519 (now out of print) would showcase the fabric and that the drape would work in my favour.  My newly finished top is just how I envisaged it.  Isn’t it great when your finished garment matches your sewing vision?

As with my previous versions (yes, it’s the third time I’ve used this pattern!) the armholes and neckline were bound so the binding was visible rather than being used as a facing.

This top is a cheery addition to my summer wardrobe and M6519 has just been promoted to ‘tried and true’ status.  Happy days…
