HI DARLINGS! Today is another wonderful day because I have had time to sew and that always puts me in a good mood. I made this great top using MCCALL #8001 and another version of THESE pants from BURDA. Before I review the pattern let me catch you up on a few things.

I was also working on my SPRING 2020 designs for SIMPLICITY and they are so great! I was working hard to get them finished and photographed, I wish I could show you now. The other things that had me really excited is that every year one my birthday Norris and I go away on a trip and this year I have decided to go back to Puerto Rico.

I miss my dad so much and the last time we went was last year before my birthday cruise when we got engaged but we didn’t get to spend much time there. This time we are going for almost two weeks! I need to start sewing for that trip because I want to make a new swimsuit and a few dresses. Speaking of sewing, let’s talk about this outfit I am wearing.


This MCCALL #8001 top pattern is great, I enjoyed making it very much and I can already tell that I will be making a few more. Its comfortable and stylish and I loved that you can use prints and or stripes to create interest. The sewing is pretty straightforward and if you have made a button up before this will be no problem.

The pants are BURDA #6770 and I already POSTED them HERE. It’s the same pants I used inn my ZEBRA TWO-PIECE look.
