Last weekend we had an event to attend. So I spent the week prior and the week of churning out outfits for my girls and myself.
Can I just say I was truly in a sewing frenzy trying to get everything completed, a few times I just wanted to quit and head to the mall but I am not a quitter, plus I really wanted to see this through to the end and not lose my mind in the process….lol.
This particular project was made for my oldest. Since I couldn’t find the fabric I had in mind for my/her original vision we had to go with another plan. The crop top and box pleated skirt.
For the crop top, I used McCall’s M7080.
I made the following alterations:
~ added 4″ to pattern length
~ did not add facing to front or back of the bodice neckline
~ finished neckline by folding over 1/2″
~ added a 12″ zipper at the back
~ used a 1″seam allowance on side seams
~ used a 1″ seam allowance on sleeve seams
~ finished the hem by folding under 1/4″ and then again 1/4″
To make the skirt I used the following YouTube tutorial.
In the end, my daughter really loved the finished product and we are both totally obsessed with this African Print fabric.
I will definitely be using this McCall’s pattern in the future. I already have another project in mind.
The pattern was very easy to work with and easy to alter to my specifications. Which I really loved.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.
Until Next Time,
