McCall’s M7093 – Don’t need buttons for this one …

… and I found the perfect buttons for my last project.  But before I show them to you, let me show you what I made with the remnants of my paisley Topaz knit.  I had some of this lovely fabric – 85% polyester, 10% rayon, 5% spandex – left over, just enough.  I think I have made a few of these McCall’s M7093 tops before – one of the other ones I made is here. 

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

I did a few things different.  After I sewed up the seams of the raglan sleeves I zig zagged some twill tape on them to prevent stretching.

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

I had to use Wonder Tape to hem the short sleeves.

Then some zig zagging.

Lastly, some straight stitching on the final turn of the hem.

Single fold bias tape at the neckline – I used a bit of Wonder Tape to hold this stretchy fabric down for sewing.

All done!  Now … front, back, left side, right side!  I’m happy with it and I have used up most of the remnants of my gorgeous fabric!

Still no buttons on my Lisbon … but the two pieces do look great together! 🙂

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

Now for my “button” reveal!  My darling daughter bought these home for me from a road trip a while ago and I put them away in a “safe place” to keep for a special outfit.  Well, my Lisbon cardigan is the special outfit!  They are a nice match!  I’ve got some buttonholes and buttons to sew now.

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

Next project?  My day-to-day tote bag is getting worn, especially at the corners and the straps.  I’m thinking about salvaging the hardware and making myself a new one.  I have a few plans to ponder.

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

What’s your next project?

Happy Sewing!

STASH BUSTING WITH THIS PROJECT?  1.4 metres (138.5 metres remaining!)

  1. Your top and sweater look great! The fabric is very nice!… I have been cutting hardware off of old purses I am getting rid of. I think it’s a great idea! … Up next for me is an Everyday Tote in princess fabric and cork for my niece and 4 little boy shirts for my nephews… Going to be a busy sewing weekend!

    Talk about a perfect match on those buttons. They look lovely on your matching tops/sweater. You just whip things up and they come out perfect. Nice job.
