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.
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.
