It took 3 tries to get it right
but I changed my hair colour!
You don't really need to use a patter to make a pillowcase top. They're super easy. But I knew I had this cute vintage pattern just sitting in my drawer so that's what I used.
This pattern is from 1976. I am a big sucker for McCall's patterns from this time period because I love the illustrations so much. Unfortunately for me, size small was still a large fitting 10-12, so I had to take about 2" out of the width of both the front and the back. But now I love the casual fit of it. And I really love that all the edges are finished with proper facings to give it a more polished finish.
I thought about adding a cute iron-on from my Wholeport stash but in the end I opted for simplicity.
I think I was inspired by this top I pinned not too long ago, which is not a pillowcase top at all:
I'm going to be very sad when all this beautiful hot weather ends but I guess that means I'll be able to start planning a wonderful hot weather getaway soon. Any suggestions? I don't usually do that 1 week all-inclusive type thing. I like to throw on my backpack and take off for a month not really knowing where the road is going to take me.
My last trip was to Thailand and I loved it. Where have you been that you think I could go (and wear my new pillowcase top!) ? Leave a comment below~
