One more top with that McCall’s pattern

20160620_121733Apparently, I cannot get enough of this pattern. As part of my vacation shopping list, “something backless” was one of my requirements. I was inspired by this pin I kept staring at all spring. I decided to go with a low back  – low enough to keep me cool, but not so low that I can’t wear a bra with it.

20160620_121750I added an inch to the shoulder seam to make the armscye roomier and more comfortable. I lowered the neckline a bit and made a big, swooping cut out in the back. I also added the band to go across the back and actually had to go back and shorten it as it failed to keep the straps on my shoulder.

20160611_143527I bound the neckline with the same red bias tape as the skirt, and get such a thrill looking at it! Using the bias tape was also significantly easier and faster than making a facing, as I had done with the seafoam horses tee and the blue and white gingham top. 

This top is the easiest, breeziest top and looks cute tucked into a skirt as well as with casual shorts.
