Navy eyelet lace ruffle off-the-shoulder top

It's finally getting to the time of year when I can wear a cute top out to dinner and not freeze! Maybe even a dress. I'm getting excited for summer sewing, and made myself this top to start it off!

Last summer I feel like the off-the-shoulder trend really kicked off, but it's still here and I'm glad, cause this style is really fun to make and wear!! There are quite a few cute patterns out there but last summer I made McCall's M6558 up several times (it's from 2012), and have learned some modifications to make it a little cuter and more current!

I found a really cute 100% cotton eyelet lace in navy blue for this top. I love cotton eyelet!

I added a cute pompom trim to the edge of the ruffle. It came in a 2-yard pack and that ruffle width is JUST under 2 yards so it was a tight fit! No wasting of that trim!

I wore it with white jeans but I think it would also be great with cut-offs for a more casual look! OR, as a swimsuit cover-up! Perfect cause it is a little see-through.

I'm kind of thinking of removing the elastic from the bottom and letting it go loose.

Pattern: McCall's M6558 (see all my uses of it here)
  • Cut bodice longer but did not add peplum
  • Cut armholes about 1.5" higher
  • Cut ruffle 2-3" shorter
  • Added trim to bottom edge of ruffle
