McCalls 6400 Knit Top

I love this blouse.  It's a simple knit top that is easy to make in an afternoon or evening. It uses one pattern piece - same piece for the front and the back and only requires a little over 1 yard to complete (size Medium).   The pattern itself looks a bit wonky when you first lay it out, but it ends up hanging on the bias and is very comfortable to wear.

This is view B from the pattern envelope.  It has one elbow length sleeve and one 3/4 length sleeve.  The hemline is asymmetrical and the lengths under the armholes are different depths as well.  Since it's the same pattern piece for the front and back, the boat style neckline makes it easy to change your mind on which side you would like to wear in the front.  Comes in handy if you spill something on the front of your blouse!   I will definitely make this pattern again.

Happy Sewing!
