McCall’s Red Christmas Top (Sponsored Post)


Hello December! This marks my last post for the Minerva Blogger Network (which was closed since the new fancy Minerva website was launched). Without knowing at the time I picked this kit that this will be my past post, I think this last project is a great way to end one stage of my collaboration with Minerva on a high.

Since it’s December, like previous years I chose to make something that could be easily worn on Christmas day.

Even though the pattern, McCall’s 8113* is very simple, I really likes the shear version and I wanted to make myself a similar outfit. The fabric had to be red of course and after some time researching the massive online store Minerva* has I settled for the dark red synergy georgette* which wasn’t the easiest of fabrics to work with but the final garment was well worth it.

Sewing Summary:
