I have always been drawn to floral prints and I was immediately smitten when I saw this one. Now that my stash busting challenge is officially over…I skipped out the door with one meter of this precious print, knowing exactly what I would make.
I have had McCalls 5661 in my pattern stash for quite some time now and haven’t made anything from it until this top. I bought it without realizing that the back was a button back which then made me unsure of it…but not any more!!! I love the button back, especially after Heather gave me a crash course on how to button that sucker up by myself!
Go ahead ask her her secret… I did. 🙂 Very helpful that one.
Pattern: McCalls 5661
Fabric used: Rayon
Instructions:The instructions were straight forward and easy. I especially love how the facing is attached. It fully encloses this little sleeve perfectly! I tried to take pictures of it but the lighting wouldn’t give me good pictures…sad face.
Changes I made: I did have to take in the waist of this one a good 5/8 inch on each side.
Repeat worthy? Definitely! The little sleeves on this one are perfect for summer and fit so nicely under a cardigan or blazer for the rest of the year.
