McCall's 5586

Ashlee is after some new summer 'easy' tops for Uni. How funny is it when after 12 years at school, wearing the same school uniform, they now realise just how lucky they had it??? 12 years of not having to look 'in-fashion'. So quick-sew tops are top of the list.

This was at her Graduation from highschool...

I have whipped these up tonight, though Ashlee is not home. Hopefully they will be a neat little surprise in the morning. Here she is just leaving with her best friend late this afternoon, heading out to an 'Art's Academy' function. Didn't they have fun dressing up for their night out...(mind you, the lining for her dress was only sewn in mid-afternoon. Who said we wouldn't have the dress ready in time???)...

Here is McCall's 5586 in an interlock fabric, modern with cute little sunglasses strewn across the design. It really whipped up in no time...and with just 1 metre of fabric - who could complain about that..

Hopefully after a few washes the bias trim will 'mess-up' in a modern sense...


And here is the same top again, but this time in a cotton batik print. This print is just beautiful, and the photos don't do it enough credit...


This time for the feature I used the selvedge as a trim around the yoke piece. Simple but effective...

So that is it from me for tonight. Today was the first day of my 2 week holidays and the sewing is obviously well underway. This is the time I am thankful for my stash of fabulous fabric...
