I rarely sew new patterns, since I’m always trying to keep up with my never ending sewing list. I usually get to sew them a year after they’re released. This time I made an exception for McCall’s 7752 this top is adorable!!! I chose the view with the bra, midriff and double peplum. I use a lightweight denim from my stash, probably from The Loft in L.A.
The bodice is fully lined and requires boning on the sides. Perhaps if you are small chested like me you can skip it. I used it just because I like how it gives you some extra support . If you never sew boning before you can go here for some tips, don’t be afraid is super simple. I cut a size 8, I had to take it in just a bit on the sides. Next time I will put together the front parts then the back, that way it will be easier to make adjustments.
I’m planing to use this pattern again soon for a July wedding. I will modify it by adding length to the peplums to make it a dress. Perhaps I’ll add a third peplum, I will definitely use lighter fabric. I just need to make up my mind about the color I want. For now I will rock my denim on denim look!
