I bought 2 yards of this lightweight striped wool/cotton jersey from Gorgeous Fabrics. I had a vision in my head of a striped wrap dress, but it is so lightweight that I would have had to line it, and I was concerned that the tiny stripes would be too much on a whole dress, so I decided to make a simple tee instead. I already had McCalls 6886 out from making my recent Breton dress, so I decided to give it a go in t-shirt form.
This fabric is Heaven. So soft and not at all scratchy, despite the wool. It feels like the comfiest, luxurious t-shirt. The pattern worked splendidly, too. I made it very long and gave it a slight shirt-tail hem.
There's not really anything left to say. This dress pattern also makes a great little top. I still have a bunch of this fabric left over, and I think the soft drapiness of it would lend well for another version of McCalls 7186, this one shortened to a top also, and probably sleeveless. This is definitely McCalls week.
