McCalls 6794

, ,
Have you ever heard me say that I'd never sew with crepe again?


Well, I really mean it this time. Unfortunately, I fell under the spell of this gorgeous bird print and chose to ignore the little voice in the back of my head that said "DO NOT HIT 'ADD TO CART'!!!"

After all, the pattern that I had in mind for it was a very simple pattern. How much trouble could it be?


McCall's 6794 is an adorable high/low spring top that I've had in my stash for a while.

Although I found it challenging to complete, I'm fairly pleased with the outcome. It has an Anthropologie-esque feel.

I love, love, love the back. Even without the tie, it would be perfect for a cute, flowy top.

This top should have taken an hour or two... seriously. It's so simple. My trouble came with hemming the bottom and sleeves.

I finally managed to hem the bottom using a rolled hem foot...

But... I gave up on the sleeves and decided to finish them with single bias tape. It's not ideal, but it was the ONLY way this top was going to be completed.

I would recommend this pattern and will likely make this top again. I think it would be fabulous in cotton lawn or lightweight linen. The only revision I would make is adding an inch or two to the length. I have a longer torso than the model in the photo and need the extra length!

But, I swear... no more crepe!! Except for using up what I purchased in the past... and then, no more crepe!!
