Just in time for what is suppose to be a beautiful spring weekend I have a cute new top to wear. The pattern is McCalls 5388, which I really liked. The instructions were clear and the top went together pretty easily. It just took me forever because I kept running out of stuff that I needed, like thread and elastic, and had to do a couple trips to Joanns before I was done. The top is quite long. Its tunic length, that kinda weird length that some people try to wear as a dress even though they really should wear pants.
I'm debating making another one of these tops using some green seersucker I got from fabric.com, or I may make one of the other variations included with the pattern. If I do I'll probably make it a couple inches shorter and possibly bring in the neckline a tad since sometimes my bra strap showed. But overall I am very pleased and hopefully I'll get to wear it out this weekend.
