I love patterns that seem to be made for me. I am a Texas girl who loves fun summer looks and I needed a few nice and easy sews after a few weeks of sewing handbags. I had Mccalls 7757 on my list to make since I saw it!! A fun off shoulder crop top and elastic flowy pants. Perfect for lounging around the house, pool or beach or shopping the day away.
The top, View B, is an easy make and so fun. I think a beginner that has basic pattern understanding can make this piece. The pants are a basic elastic pant with no fitting needed so again a great beginner project.
This fun and super soft double brushed poly is from Pretty Posh Prints . If you have never bought fabric from there before you should I have never been disappointed in her fabrics.
I want to make this set again in a solid for a more elegant look that will go into an evening. I would like to make one in a white to wear with a cotton box pleat skirt. I may not get that done this year but for next summer it will be perfect.
So if you have been on the fence of McCalls 7757 go for it!! Also, checkout Pretty Posh Prints Fabric.
