I feel as though I wear the same tops in my regular wardrobe rotation each week. SO I have added tops to my list of makes and plan on making at least 1 or 2 new ones each month. This way I won’t feel as though I am wearing the same tops all the time.
I choose McCall’s 7543 this month along with another top, blog post for that one coming next week, out of a cotton fabric from Hobby Lobby it can be found here. This fabric is 100% cotton and it is so soft. I was drawn to the color combo, love red, white, and black, then there is a splash of gray in there too. So this top can be worn with different pants or capris. I put it on with a pencil skirt and it didn’t have the best look, well on me anyway.
I paired this top with a pair of gray skinny leg jeans that I purchased from Kohl’s way before I started sewing and it was the perfect look.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No alterations, I used view B for the top, but used view D for the sleeve, no reason, just my personal choice

Conclusion: Great top and with the perfect fabric choice this can be dressed up or down.
