A little weekend knit sewing: Three tops and a (almost) dress

Just a few quick projects I whipped up this weekend.  Upper left is McCall's 6797 ,which I'm absolutely loving. It's a Palmer/Pletsch design that was released in the Fall Collection.  You won't believe how crazy fast this one comes together!  I used a four-way rayon blend knit that worked beautifully for the design.  More pics and review to follow.  Upper right is Butterick 5497 , which I sewed in black when the pattern was released (in 2010). That black top is one of my go-to tops, which is why I chose to sew another. This time I used an ITY chevron print I picked up at Denver Fabrics during my June 2012 visit to CO. More pics and review to follow. Lower left is McCall's 6752 . I sewed a muslin of this top a few months ago as I wanted to check the fit of that lower portion with the zip.  The fit was great, but the knit I used was much too lightweight to do this top justice.  This is an ITY peacock feather print knit from Fabric Mart Fabrics.
