McCall's 7284 Top
This is a great pattern.
I love the neckline - it's a nice faced V. It's not too low and it lays nice and flat.
I also love that the gathered bodice has just the right amount of fullness - it doesn't look like a maternity top. I love the band across the bottom.
It wasn't quite as long as I thought it would be. So instead of hemming it, I added a narrow strip to the bottom.
The armholes are small and high and when I inserted the sleeves, they were too tight. So, I made it sleeveless. I put self-fabric bias binding on the armholes.
I changed the way the front yoke attaches to the lower bodice as I don't like trying to do inset corners.
I love sewing cotton woven tops. And they are perfect to wear in hot, humid summer heat.
