February MAGAM

It's finished.  I made McCalls 4097 view A.  The neckline is too big and my bra straps show.  I don't know what I can do to hide them.  I hope March's garment will come out better.  See my blog for more details.


  1. Do you have enough fabric left to make a band for the neckline? That would probably be wide enough to cover your bra straps. You could also make some loops inside to hold your bra strap like they do on some ready to wear garments.

    1. I think I do have enough fabric left over. Never thought of a neck band. I try that. Thanks.

  2. Lovely top. You can get or make bra strap stays that will keep them tucked inside your top.

  3. Yes, a new neckband, bra strap stays, and if the worse comes to the worse, layer it over a little top that you may already have - it's such a pretty colour and drape that it must be worn :)

  4. Such a cute top.. Love the green color.. Like Sarahliz 's thought.. Wear a little cami under it.. Happy sewing.

  5. Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I have a lot to learn when it comes to creating a garment for your specific body type. I will post what I have done to correct the problem.
