Flirty Cold Shoulder Sweater Top

Added Oct 29, 2018

Portland, Oregon...






This was a fairly quick and easy top pattern to sew. I used McCalls 7722 (view B) pattern and some cotton/poly sweater knit to sew this up. Really fun, especially when it all goes so fast and I was able to make this up in time to wear out for lunch with my boyfriend last weekend! My trusty serger was helpful and made this project come together much faster and with better results.

One note if you are planning on making this top is the flounce seams. Maybe I did it incorrectly, but the seams didn’t seem (ha ha, I made a pun!) to turn out on the inside as they should. Just make sure you have this right before sewing to the opening. Maybe carefully read the steps ahead, baste the seams, pin and check before sewing?

Otherwise, it’s a super cute top pattern with sleeve variations to play with.

      Thanks Mary! You should try it; it’s a fun pattern! I’ll probably be making it again in the same view or one of the other sleeve versions :)
