McCall's 7436 Top

 This pattern has been on my radar for so long and I'm glad I finally got around to making it. I made a combination of views A (sleeves) and C (ties). The fabric is a silk blend that my co-worker brought from China back in 2016. It was very slippery but ironed so well and has just the right amount of drape needed for this pattern. Next time I'd like to make it with view D ties. 
The pattern is loose-fitting and was easier to make than I initially thought it would be. The fabric is cool and was comfortable to wear in the heat. I wore the top with jeans today and it looked great with them, too.
I finally ordered a copy of Tilly's first book, Love at First Stitch and it arrived a few weeks ago. I can't wait to try the patterns that came with it. The book has great reviews and from what I can tell so far, it's easy to see why. It has a wealth of information, along with great pictures to follow along.
Have a wonderful week, and happy sewing.

  1. That is a very pretty blouse, and silk would be lovely to wear. Looking forward to seeing your Tilly makes in due course.
    I do hope I haven't missed one of your posts, I have been pre-occupied lately. If I have, my apologies.
