Tropical Vibes

Pretty Girls Sew Along: April

Theme: Spring

Pattern: McCall's 7757

Hello Beautiful People.. Happy New Month! If you don't know already, Pretty Girls Sew's Monthly Sew Along is baaaack. Our 5th Year Anniversary is this Month, So we decided to do an oldie but goodie.. If you'd like to join our upcoming sew alongs, make sure to follow @PrettyGirlsSew on Instagram. May Sew Along is now up. 

Let's talk about this midriff top tho.. Even though, I almost NEVER show my midriff/belle/fupa/love handle (except for this time), I was excited to make this top. I didn't even hesitate.. I just started looking for fabric and decided to wear it while on travel, in Houston. The top is so romantic and the print was giving me Tropical Vibes.. Probably one of the coolest outfit I've ever made. And I'm super proud of myself for wearing it and taking pics to share with you all. 

Hair: Bobbi Boss Yara Lace Front by Elevate Styles


Pattern Description: Very loose fitting off the shoulder tops have elasticized neckline and waist and sleeve variations. A, B: Ruffles. Loose fitting pull-on pants have elasticized waist and pockets.

Pattern Sizing: I couldn't find my size, so I purchased the pattern size L-XL and altered the pattern to fit my size. A lot of people said the pattern runs big.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern once you were done sewing with it? Not exactly. The fabric I used made it look a little different. 

Were the instructions easy to follow? Absolutely, I sewed the top and pants after work one day. 

What did you particularly like about the pattern? Love the top variation. It's also very comfortable and stylish. 

Fabric Used: Burnout Organza, from Joann's 

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  No design changes, just took out an inch or so from the side seams so that the garment can fit me better. I also chose not to add pockets.

Would you sew it again? Yes, would love to sew it in other cool fabric.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes, perfect for beginners. 

Hope this inspired you to make your own version.
Thanks for stopping by..

xo, Ye
