McCalls 6077

After sewing all day Saturday on that dress, I needed to make up something really quick.  Instant Gratification.  I'm sure you all understand.  I got this pattern to make up some easy tanks for under my blazers for work.
I got this wonderful soft Vera Wang knit at FabricMart a couple months ago ($1.99 a yard...gotta luv a bargain!)  Boy, I wish I would have bought more colors....it's a gorgeous fabric.  This picture is bad, but you get the idea.

The collar looks so much thinner on the pattern envelope than the actual collar when finished.  It's frustrating when the envelope shows slight differences.  I'll make up some more and maybe even embellish them.  Quick and easy pattern.

I love that shirt! I had one very similar that I picked up at the Salvation Army with a Talbots label. It had sleeves though. The fit was so comfy but alas, the hem came out and since there were holes where the thread unraveled I never repaired it. I would love to make one from the pattern you selected but gathers and I don't get along yet.

Lovely top - it's a great style, very versatile.

What a nice top. Great for under your jackets.

Great basic. I need some myself, for the upcoming fall/winter season. Pattern envelopes do not portray garments accurately, especially illustrations.

What a great pattern! You could have so much fun making the variations and doing the embellishments. I love the top you've made.
