Battle Creek, Un...
My 3rd McCalls 6751, this time View D with the pleated long back. That back is very long…I’m not sure that I like it. But I like the rest of it and will wear it anyway. I think the drape of the fabric is perfect for a top like this. It flutters in the wind, and is very permeable, but it’s kind of stiff, so it sits away from the body, allowing you to see through it. The sides and shoulders are french seams. The neck, hem & arms are narrow hems. I did them by stitching all around at my seam allowance, pressed it up, tucked in the extra to make the hem, pressed, then stitched about 1/4 away from the edge. Took nearly as long as hand stitching, like I did in view A, but was easier on my fingers.
Navy, transparent, poly-blend from Joanns. Frays like crazy, but was otherwise really easy to work with.
