Liberty on London Silk-Cotton Voile - McCall 7359







Do you want to make a breezy, floaty top for the summer? Well look no further, Mood has a slew of beautiful  Liberty on London fabrics that are perfect for light, airy summer tops.  It took me a while to settle on Mistral Golden Nutria Silk-Cotton Voile.  This beauty has a hint of transparency.  The finish is smooth and glossy. The drape is a perfect match for McCall's 7359. 




The pattern is described as:  pullover tops (semi-fitted through bust) have upper sections extending into sleeves with gathers, front pleated lower sections, and narow hem. A, B: Neck band. B: Shaped hemline, wrong side shows. C: Sleeve band. C, D: Collar.

It comes in sizes XS to XL.  I used size medium with modifications.  See my post here for the details.




With a few adjustments I was able to make it work for me.  It is a great complement to a nice pair of  leggings or slim pants.  That's how I'll wear it. ;-)

This little pattern is a winner.  I will probably make a few more before the end of summer.  My likes:
  •  dolman sleeves and "V" neckline
  • long curve hemline of view B
  • easy to  make and wear




The fabric and the pattern are both winners.  Try them.  You won't be disappointed.

Happy Sewing!

  2. Beautiful top! I've made this pattern earlier this month and was very happy with it too. I gathered in place of the pleats in the front on my version. Will be making it up again soon. You look lovely! Great job!
