Liberty on London Silk-Cotton Voile – McCall 7359

 

 

Do you want to make a breezy, floaty top for the summer? Well look no further, Mood has a slew of beautiful  Liberty on London fabrics that are perfect for light, airy summer tops.  It took me a while to settle on Mistral Golden Nutria Silk-Cotton Voile.  This beauty has a hint of transparency.  The finish is smooth and glossy. The drape is a perfect match for McCall’s 7359.

 

The pattern is described as:  pullover tops (semi-fitted through bust) have upper sections extending
into sleeves with gathers, front pleated lower sections, and narow hem. A, B: Neck band. B: Shaped hemline, wrong side shows. C: Sleeve band. C, D: Collar.

It comes in sizes XS to XL.  I used size medium with modifications.  See my post here for the details.

With a few adjustments I was able to make it work for me.  It is a great complement to a nice pair of  leggings or slim pants.  That’s how I’ll wear it. ;-)

This little pattern is a winner.  I will probably make a few more before the end of summer.  My likes:

  •  dolman sleeves and “V” neckline
  • long curve hemline of view B
  • easy to  make and wear

 

The fabric and the pattern are both winners.  Try them.  You won’t be disappointed.

Happy Sewing!
