I like this pattern, McCall’s 5627. It seems to be well drafted and was easy to sew. I raised the neckline 5/8″ and changed it from a square neckline to a rounded neckline. I don’t remember where I got this fabric, off some sale table or other, but it drapes well and was cooperative during the sewing process. I also really liked doing the free-motion embroidery. My daughter, being an artist, could draw some designs which I could translate into embroidery on another blouse. Think how good a white top would look with black or red embroidery designs!
Here’s the completed front of the top which shows the embroidery and the lining used in the yoke pieces.
This picture shows the back yoke with the machine-made buttonhole stitch. I had fun using this stitch which I have never tried before. I’m going to have to try it with topstitching thread sometime.
M should be here pretty soon on the way home from work to try it on, so I should go give it its final pressing.
