McCalls 8777 - a pattern for all occasions


This pattern has been a favourite of mine, especially for making heaps of winter work tops. I've altered it for rolled shoulder adjustment and for sway back. I've since lowered the hemline by 5cm for the winter.
The dark red/black top is a favourite work top that I wear lots in the winter. I've made this fabric into a cross over top Kwik Sew 2694.

The striped fabric had been sitting at the bottom of my wardrobe, lining it. I didn't consider it worthwhile however, I found some cherry fold over elastic and it's now a casual top that I wear on weekends.
The grey blue fabric has a band of elastic lace over the chest. Not for emphasis but to conceal. They're both comfortable to wear.
