When I was given the opportunity to create a line of patterns for McCall Patterns, I knew I wanted to create something that was quintessentially me. Keeping in mind, my style isn’t for everyone I also wanted patterns that can easily be altered to accommodate your own personal esthetic. When I decided on this strapless tunic, I thought about the beauty of a woman’s shoulders and the idea of minimal layering. This top makes you feel completely covered and sexy at the same time.
A top like this requires fabric with a lot of movement. I used a polyester crepe from moodfabrics.com that’s unfortunately sold out but here is a collection of polyester crepe at moodfabrics.com that would work just as nicely.
Not familiar with polyester crepe? It’s a thinner fabric that generally provides a great drape, doesn’t pill, shrink or fade and keeps it’s new look. It’s easy to cut, sew and iron all at an economical price.
