Sewing Projects 7: Modified McCall’s 6035

The last thing I sewed in 2011 was this top which I wore the first day back at work.

I modified McCall’s 6035 top pattern a great deal. The pattern images look like this:

I joined the front and back panel pattern pieces together before cutting them out so I didn’t have the “princess” seams at the sides of my torso. This means it’s not fitted but that isn’t what I was going for.

I used just the neckband and short sleeves (basically like view A, the black/white check) and added the ties to the collar before sewing the neckband and its facing together. I just eye-balled the length and width of the ties and I think they’re perfect!

The fabric I got at Haberman’s in both this purple and also a green with orange flowers. It’s silk and probably the most expensive fabric I’ve ever purchased ($16/yard). I found the green first and was going to walk to the counter with just that until I saw the purple as well. I had to have them both!! The color in this pic is pretty spot-on. One of my Sewing New Year’s Resolutions is to sew and wear more purple!
