Lyocell White Top

Upstate, South C...






Vintage McCall’s 7509 pattern c. 1981 is such a classic little top it must have been pure serendipity to have picked it up at a local thrift store for all of ten cents! Thinking my fabric was 100% cotton, after the project was complete I came to realize it was 100% Lyocell. Lyocell?!! This was a first for me! After a little research found out I was wearing ‘wood pulp’. Lovely fabric with lovely drape wood pulp wears well. ;) I love everything about my new top. Lots more info about this top and lyocell properties at: http://www.lisascarolina.com/2017/08/lyocell-white-top-mccalls-vintage.html

Happy Sewing Everyone! :)

      It was interesting to learn about lyocell as it’s not widely available here in the U.S. At least not to me! Thank you so much! :)
