Newspaper Worthy McCalls 6796 (Mod.)

Happy Wednesday !!! and hoping all had a fabulous holiday and looking forward to the New Year.

With today being the last work day before the New Year, I opted to go business casual instead of jeans.  The last couple of weeks at work have been jean attire, however, I feel most comfortable in suits and business casual wear.  Of course, if I am feeling bone, thugs and harmonic... lol... I will rock jeans.

To add a lil eclectic fun to my  outfit, I made McCalls 6796 using a newspaper print knit that I'd purchased from Spandex World.  


M6796 is one of my TnT patterns, made herehere and some not posted about.



  I modified it by omitting the collar and changing the neckline from a crew neckline to a scoop neckline, yielding the perfect pull-over/t-shirt pattern.  All the seams were joined using my triple stitch and the neckline, sleeves and hemline were folded to the inside and straight stitched with the stitch length at 2.6.




Paired the top with a loft vest, black slacks and suede boots... totally feelin' in my comfort zone.



Until then,
Everyone Have an Awesome New Year !!!

This is THE CUTEST top! Such a good fabric eye you have! I tend to over purchase these types of print cause I get lots of ideas in my head about how to use it. You look fabulous! Happy 2016!!!
