McCalls 7127 (altered)

So I never post here, as you can tell by my numerous *sorry I never post* blogs.  I have been sewing, I usually have to time it, I practice my routines, get my sets built and whatever time I have leftover becomes focus on sewing.
I have sewed McCalls 7127 several times, I have sewed it enough that I bought the pattern 2 more times. I can cut and sew it within 2-3 hours (depending on the back I chose). I decided to do something a little different this time around. I traced the pattern and then cut out a front panel.

The middle panel of fabric was one that I had previously used to make view A of this pattern (go figure).  This time I was making view B. The only other difference in the top is I used spare material to bind the back rather than making a 5/8" hem.

 The front half of the shirt, Zinnia approves and needs attention.
The back half with the cutout and binding. ps-it's a white tank top not my bra.

Someday I would like to post the other incarnations of this top, if I can get a good hair day.
