McCall’s calls again

Good afternoon my good people!…As I said, I’m really going to try and whip up something cool everyday this month…if not, I am going to post about something sewing related…I just loves and loves sewing (smile)….This time around it was the top I was meaning to make right before I whipped up my last dress…It is McCall’s pattern #M6562 View D…..I really liked the pattern when I saw it because it has five views…but I probably will never make view B and C just because I don’t care for them….Views A, D, and E will get a lot of use though I’m sure….
I modified this pattern quite a bit…I omitted the lining because frankly its just too warm around these parts for anything “lined”…its still in the high 90’s and it always has potential to reach the 100 degree mark….I also omitted the zipper because I didn’t have one in a color to match and I didn’t feel like shortening a longer zipper I could have used for something else…so I just left it out….I used some fabrics I had in my stash….I initially wanted the sleeve to be Black lace but I didn’t have enough lace…damn…I needed like two more inches of lace and it would have been perfect…oh well, there’s always next time….This was also a bias cut pattern (my first one) so the shirt is stretchy, which is always good! (laugh, go on, you know you want to)….
I am also officially a part of the Happy Black Girl team; being introduced just today as the new weekly DIY go-to person for the site!…Can we say COOL?….WE CAN…….
Well let me share the flicks of my new top and a link to my introduction into the HBG get down….

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
