McCalls M7443 - A quick, easy, and stylish sew!






How darling is this fabric?!?!?!?!?! When I first came across this fabric (HERE), I didn't know exactly what I would do with it, but I knew I wanted it.  P.S.... Its currently on sale!!!




As you may know, McCall's recently launched their pre-fall patterns and I was pleased to see a blogger turned McCalls designer's patter listed for this pleated tunic. The pattern calls for wovens, but I opted to use this ITY. 




The construction was simple and a fast sew. I am always in need of tops, and this was a winner. From such a simple pattern, there are endless possibilities for wear, fabric choices and styles. 















You can wear them with jeans, leggings, leather pants, shorts, or even a skirt! You can construct and wear per the instructions, style it with a front tie, or even create something completely different.













Because I used a stretch fabric, I reduced the sides by one inch, and shortened the elastic by 2 inches. I think I will be be using this pattern again and incorporate different looks such as a curved high low, or even adding sleeves once the weather cools down. I am also looking forward to making a silk version specifically to wear with leather leggings. Endless possibilities. I look forward to more patterns from this designer very soon! Following her over the years, I wouldn't have expected anything less than stylish and original pieces! 











What would you make with this pattern?  What types of fabrics will you use?


Until next time... Happy Sewing!
