Linen and Lace Blouse Ladies Shirt M7544 Pattern Review

McCalls pattern M7544 is a quick sew and perfect for a summer shirt. You can use cotton or linen fabric and use lace fabric as the contrast to dress it up just a little. This is a sponsored post written in partnership with JOANN. All text and opinions are mine. 
Easy Womans Linen and Lace Shirt
At the beginning of the year, I made a challenge to myself to sew something for me once a month. So far, I’ve finished some unfinished t-shirts, a backpack, a skirt, and yarn wrapped baskets. I haven’t be able to make something every month, well just because life.

For my next sewing challenge, I decided to try making m7544. I bought the pattern about 2 years ago, but then I got pregnant and all motivation (and energy) was lost. It actually would make for a great early pregnancy shirt because of how flowy it is. 
So, this summer, I decided it was time to finally make it.

Level: intermediate (you need to know how to ease a sleeve in)

Pattern m7544
Linen or cotton – I did a blue linen
Lace or contrasting fabric
*optional – exposed zipper for the back

I used a lovely blue heather linen from JOANN and some lace fabric on for the top part. I wasn’t sure I was going to like the feel of the linen, but after I wore it for a bit, I loved how light and airy it felt. It’s the perfect fabric for a summer shirt.

The pattern was pretty straight forward and easy to follow. For the back, instead of using a hook and eye, I decided to add a zipper. The trickiest part was the lace, but other than that it was quite straight forward and a quick sew…Well theoretically a quick sew, it took me a 3-4 nights mostly because I only had little chunks of time. But that’s how I get any sewing done if I want to sew something J.
