Sewing is therapy for me. I hoard fabric, patterns, notions, and spend more time shopping for fabric than I care to admit...

McCall's 7543 More tunic love!

I love this pattern.  This is my 2nd go at it and I think I love the sheer simplicity of it even more now than I did the first time I made it.  Here is my first make:

There is just something about how this fits on my shoulder area that makes me smile!

Obviously my first version was view B and this time I made the sleeves of D and the shaped hem of C in a tunic length.  

I used a very lightweight denim from JoAnns.  This has been in my stash for a bit and I decided to just make this as I've seen so many cute denim tops lately.

See what I mean about how it fits on my shoulder/upper arms?  It doesn't slide down nearly as far as the pattern model does and that is just fine with me!  

I honestly don't mind that it dips lower in the back than it does the front and no, I am not wearing it backwards. 

I do like the elasticized cuff with this one.  Although those little ties on view B are super cute.  I didn't have enough fabric to make that version.  

I love this tunic.  It is the perfect showcase for my jewelry!  

Thanks for reading!


  1. Sue, you always sew such wonderful garments! That top is perfect on you, especially the colour.

  2. This is a winner. I love the fabric, the colour and the lines are very flattering.
