Fall Wardrobe Essential: Neckline Love - McCalls 7126

A sassy neckline and peplum, I was smitten the minute I saw this pattern and knew I had to make it. I had visions of every color in the rainbow in my closet . I just love everything about it, the Princess Seams and the weight of the fabric I chose was just awesome. The fabric is a medium weight textured knit, but oh my goodness its one of the softest knits I have every felt.  It has almost a sponge like texture, like a Techno Knit, but not as spongy.  It is a 4 way knit too.  

In this picture you can see the texture and how buttery it is:

The true color is in the picture above.  But below you can see how I paired it with a pair of black pebble crepe wide leg pants and pumps.  The fit was right on.  I love the neckline and the squared peplum.  

Quick Review:  McCalls 7126:

Was it Easy:  Very
Modifications:   None
Sizing:   True to size (I went down a size because of the stretchy of the fabric).
Would I Make Again:  Definitely
Do I recommend:  Highly
Notes:  I lined mine with a coordinating tissue knit, it worked well. 

Happy Sewing!
