Project Chronicles- Wrap Top Design inspiration- (MCCall's 7892)

Hello again folks.... This week is another Project chronicled from my Sew & Chat LIVE with Sew-To-Fit live-streamed via my youtube channel. During this Sew & Chat project, I sewed this stylized wrap top inspired by Keke Palmer, whom I caught while watching the morning show. You may have already seen it pop up on my instagram account. I'm trying ya'll! My assistant is new at multi-tasking. LOL.



—-PATTERN- McCall’s 7892 👚 with modifications.
The skirt will be sewn again and blogged later. I have a few things to say about that one.

—-FABRIC- Red Egyptian Cotton that I purchased from Sew Much Fabric
___Although, I try to list every modification I make to my projects, sometimes I make more even while I'm cutting. A simple slight of the hand.
  • Rotated the shoulder gathers to form the side bust dart.
  • At the waist I created tucks instead of gathers, and embedded a dart inside the tucks.
    Then... I
  • changed the sleeve to create a puff / bishop design.
  • Lengthened the bodice to my preference. The original McCall’s pattern was extremely “cropped”.
Anyway, watch the beginning of the video for more fitting details. I know it’s long, but it's just the part where I only detail the fitting and alterations of the pattern to get it to look like this. This was a two part video since the changes and sewing were so involved.

Theater night with my BFF.
I enjoyed wearing my outfit to the showing of "The Color Purple" as a treat for my sister's birthday.  We had an absolute wonderful time.
Thanks again for following along as I document my makes for the projects I sew during my Youtube live-streams.  There is still many follow-up post to come with pictures, as I work to catch up on the long list of projects to Chronicle here on the blog.  Have a great week.

Sewtofit Live Sew & Chats are an extension of my custom sewing projects, Private Patron Sew-To-Fit Alongs, and personal wardrobe building projects. ***These live-streams are meant to build community and give me the chance to enjoy my craft in the company of others. Consider these videos an online sewing guild, sew with me, watch or just listen. There may be moments of silence but these is always something to see. Please enjoy 😉 #sewingcommunity #sewingproject #sewinglive
