This first one is made from a thin soft knit with a cutsie little candy print. I bought a yard of it to make some pj's for my 4-year-old, but I wanted to see if it was going to give me any difficulties first. So I pulled out McCalls 6078 and made this cowl neck top for myself in no time flat. I highly recommend this pattern as I have now made two views from it and have been pleased with my results both times. I left it unhemmed, as it will just be a pj shirt for me.
After I took the above picture, I changed into the other top I recently made. I showed you the silk double georgette I bought from Denver Fabrics along with McCall's 6519. I made the shell and shortened it like I said I would. I loved it a bunch until I tried to hem it. I unpicked my first attempt and then decided to try a rolled hem. After I finished and snipped my threads, it looked like I had put elastic in the hem or something. It was like it shrunk at the bottom. Now, when I wear it, it bubbles, which is not what I was going for, but I guess until I learn how to hem silk, this is what I've got.
