More Me Time: McCalls 7162 with Modifications - Denim Hi-Lo Shoulder Strap Top.

This was a UFO for a about a month.  When I started it I was excited.  In my mind I knew I wanted to make a few changes, and I was excited that the pattern had a built in bust adjustment.  My girls are on the large size so getting dart placement sometime can be challenging.  But after cutting it out and fussing with the darts I gave up and through the project in the UFO pile.  Yes I have a UFO pile.  LOL

This past weekend, I was determined to clear out some clutter in my sewing room and the first thing I picked up was this top.  When I looked at it I just shook my head.  "I will not let this stump me", is what I thought, and got to work.  After many adjustments, this is the final outcome.  and I love it. It still has some minor flaws, but I'm fine with them. 


Modifications:  Extended the back, shorten the torso and removed an 1/2 inch from upper bodice back.
