Asymmetrical stretch knit top McCalls 6400

This asymmetrical stretch knit top was partially sewn when I bought it along with the pattern. It's previous owner must have gotten really really frustrated with the slinky stretchy fabric and gave it away.

I overlocked the side seams and twin needled the sleeves, neckline and hem.

It fits, feels comfortable, looks weird and keeps sliding over to reveal bra straps.

It is very easy and quick to sew.

Spring swimsuit practice

My first ever swimsuit top.

Modifications to the original pattern included: grading from s to m from the waist down, taking in the bust area another 2cm and sewing in bra cups salvaged from an old bra.
