Transitioning Summer Blouse to a Fall Look McCalls 7601

Happy Tuesday

So I sewed up this blouse yesterday to go under my McCall's peplum cardigan. I made View A. It's a pretty easy sew. However the neck tie to the bodice threw me for a loop. I had to set the instructions aside. Because the diagram was throwing me. I just pinned it on the mannequin and it made sense.

I like the inside. My serger is on the fritz again, so I had to use my scissors, for the inside. I like it.

I believe this top transition well into the Fall. The cardigan is is scuba knit which is hot, so having a sleeveless blouse works for me. Both fabrics are from Joann's Fabric Store.

Well that's it for now....

Oh I broke down and ordered my new cutting table so I'm super excited about that. My current table is leaning the wheels are bent, dont ask me how.. its not sturdy at all. And I refuse to cut on the floor again.
