Pattern: McCall's 6563
Fabric: Cosy stretch knit from Mason's
I haven't made many tops yet and thought it was about time I branched out. I really liked the casual, yet pretty look of this pattern and it was a great excuse to buy some fabric I'd been lusting after for months in Mason's. It wasn't cheap so I could never quite justify buying a dress's worth, but I only needed 1m for this top so treated myself.
As for the pattern, it was super easy. It's just two pieces with a built-in front facing, so the whole thing took a couple of hours and turned out beautifully! I went a size smaller than I usually would, but wanted it to be a bit more fitted than it was intended, and I'm really happy with how it turned out.
Not much more to say, really, except I'll definitely be making more versions!
