In a strange way this week was challenging for me. I love pink. It has and likely always will be my favorite color so I was thrilled to see it in the coming challenges. What’s the problem? Well, I had too many ideas and have so much pink fabric its not even funny. I made muslins for 2 different dresses this week. I considered making a Ginger. I almost made a nightie. I even pulled out my panties pattern. In short the week really got away from me. Then I started to think about the fact that I signed up for Me Made May and more precisely that I had nothing me made to wear with one of my favorite skirts. That simply would not do so I decided to make I plain pink top.
I used view A of McCall’s 6078 for this one. I made a medium because this pattern runs notoriously big. The shoulders still kept falling off so I added a little strip of fabric to the top to hold it together. I have a Gap shirt from this winter that works this way and I’ve been pleased. I’m sure I will be much more comfortable in it now that I don’t have to worry about it pretty much falling off.
I also made view B this week to test the fit before I cut my good fabric. I actually like the style of this one better. If I make this pattern again a may try to add sleeves to this view.
