Craft-tastic office top

 

Tunic, McCall’s Pattern M6127

So this little tunic is part of McCall’s Pattern M6127. I made a black ribbed rayon jersey one first in size 26 (the is the size on a pattern, not a commercial dress size). The first one that I don’t have pictures of ;-( I made without altering the pattern at all. It was almost a dress it was sooooooo long. A mini dress at least… it was mid thigh on me and a little bit big in the armhole.

This second effort was shortened by 5 inches, but still turned out too big because I deviated from the recommended fabric type.

I had intended to wear this in layers so I rolled the dice and used a very stretchy light rayon jersey… it was too light and this garment ended up bigger (mostly) longer than I would have liked. I am still pretty happy with it though.

The pattern was a good one, easy to make. The green top took me one movie so about two hours start to finish. I will be making this top again for sure.
