McCalls 6078

My latest creation is McCalls 6078.

I love this pattern! It's a sleeveless top, but the straps are plenty wide to cover my bra straps without adjustments, and it's not skin-tight, which is nice for the Florida heat. I like the little tubes of fabric on the straps that add a little interest. I decided to use the regular fabric for those tubes on this version, but the second one (that is almost finished) has contrasting leather loops.

The fabric is a rayon jersey from Sawyer Brook which appears to have recently sold out. I am getting much better at sewing fabric as I get it and curbing my purchases when I have a backlog, but I still need to work a lot to sew down my older stash.
