Silky flowers top - McCall's 7542
The fabric is quite interesting. I bought 2 meters and it had 2 flowers borders then 1 row of light blue on each side and again flowers in the middle. I bought it that weekend at a depot just outside town and the price i payed suggested it is rayon. But it sure looks and feels like silk so I wander if the young boy at that stand who didn't seemed the regular seller there didn't made a mistake and confused the bolt. There were no labels or tags there so you just had to deal with opinions and touching the fabrics..
I made a mess of the fabric trying different pattern placements but I still think I have enough of it to make a dress for Eva.
A jumpsuit for Eva with 3/4 legs in bird print single jersey with pink ribbing. I wanted her to have a really comfortable version but it lost its sharp look in this fabric:
