McCalls 6435 - Misses top

Yesterday I managed to be quite productive and sewed McCalls 6435 misses top in a nice textured knit.

Misses' Tops: Close fitting, pullover tops have neck and sleeve length variations.  A,B: Heart shaped yoke.  C,D: Asymmetrical shaped yoke.  Designed for light and medium weight moderate stretch knits only.

 I selected the heart shaped yoke, but because I used the same fabric throughout I joined the back yoke and back pieces together  omitting the seam.

I added some narrow pink ribbon to outline the heart shape too just to give some more definition.

One extra addition I made was to add a self bias trim to the neck edge.  The pattern called for the neck edge just to be folded over, but I wanted something more defined.  I simply cut a 1 1/2" bias strip,  measured the required length needed , joined the edges together folded it wrong sides together and then serged it to the neck edge.

Here is a close-up of the fabric which isn't quite so obvious in the full-length photo.
And here is your's truly modelling it complete with Ugg boots to keep my toes warm - it looks like I have the shortest legs in the world!!!!!.

I also finished my Issey tunic so I will post that separately in the next blog.
