racerback & forth

Added Jun 27, 2012

Louisville, Kent...






I used McCalls 6359 (a tunic pattern) to make a long tank top and an elastic-waist dress using rayon jersey. It has a racerback-style back, which I’m not crazy about now that I’ve made it. I still feel like I’ll wear these pretty often because they’re so basic!

This pattern runs big, at least for stretchy fabrics, so watch out.

Material Notes

Rayon jersey, stretch lining for feather dress

    I am so envious of everything you do, and I’m an avid reader of your blog. As always, great work!

    Both pieces are very cute and versatile! You mentioned that you’re not crazy about the racerback but I really like that detail!

    Great neckline edges…..I saw the blog post and I’m going to try it! I’ve yet to get this done properly on jersey fabric. Good job
