This fabric - a colorful, super soft rayon knit - had been in my stash for a few years. I originally planned to sew a summer knit dress using McCall's 6519, but honestly I have soooo many summer knit dresses that I would not have worn it often in our short summer season.
Instead I sewed this drape front knit top knowing that I could wear it to work with dress pants or just for kicking around with jeans.
I thought I would get more wear out of it than I have. Since November I've only worn it half a dozen times. One of those times when I gathered with girlfriends during the holiday to make truffles (yummy!) followed by a dinner and drinks and delicious conversation.
The only alteration I made to the pattern was to lengthen the sleeves slightly. It's cold where I live! I still ended up wearing a cami underneath it for added warmth. I sewed a straight small in the shoulder/neck area tapering to a medium for the balance. At the time I sewed this I had put on about ten pounds and it fit a bit loosely but not too bad. I've been working on dropping those extra pounds and today, with a few extra pounds gone, I find this to fit looser than I'd like.
