This is my new cozy-yet-kinda-sexy shirt that I just *loooooooove*.
There’s something kinda saucy about a low-cut back, don’t you think?
This is McCall’s 7127, view B, a very easy top that has only 3 pattern pieces to cut. It was just what I needed to break through the sewing block wall that kept me from finishing any sewing since December. On a whim I pulled this pattern out of my stash, grabbed this fabric that I had been saving for something else, and got down to business without thinking about it too much. Within a few hours I was done. It gave me a great sense of relief to finally complete a sewing project! Sometimes I spend way too much time deliberating, second-guessing, hesitating, etc., and not enough time just sewing.
I love the houndstooth pattern that also looks a bit like Space Invaders. The fabric is a polyester stretch jersey I found at Fabricland. It’s very soft and all kinds of comfortable to wear.
Some notes on the pattern: it does not include bust darts, which isn’t a problem for me but may be for gals with a fuller bust. You can even see in the picture below where the fabric bunches a bit near my armpit, which a dart would take care of nicely, but this sort of thing doesn’t bother me. Also of note is that the line drawing for the pattern doesn’t really convey the fact that the shirt has drop shoulders. I thought at first that the shoulder fit was way off but it’s clearly drafted this way, and works just fine for me.
My cats like to follow me around if I’m doing a photo shoot in the back alley. Look at dis guy!!!
