Happy Saturday everyone!! It is a bit gloomy and wet here in Atlanta, GA, but it’s still a beautiful day to me because I woke up healthy, and have been blessed to see another day with my family. Being a working mom means that the weekends are when I have to run most of my errands, because my weekdays are taken up by work and activities for the children. Today, I don’t mind running around because I feel comfy in my new me made sewfit.
I used McCalls 7691 and used a fun Premium Paola Brushstrokes Black Liverpool Knit from L.A. Finch Fabrics to complete this look. I also used a ribbed knit fabric from my stash for the sleeves and the upper bodice of the top to give a little contrast.
The only change that I made was to shorten the leggings by two inches because I am 5’3″.
I absolutely love this pattern, I am definitely adding it to my TNT (tried and true) list. I am going to make this and the other option in different fabric choices.
I ran around town, went grocery shopping, and was comfortable and stylish through it all. Though the weather was a bit gloomy, this outfit brightened my day.
Here’s another way to style McCalls 7691. I paired mine with a DIY knit pencil skirt, booties, and layered necklaces. Now I’m ready for a date night with the hubby or a girl’s night out with my favorite ladies. This is a TNT (tried and true) pattern, because I can make it, dress it up, dress it down, and feel fabulous either way.
