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.
