DIY Boho Look + Pattern Review M7391

DIY Boho Look + Pattern Review M7391 - Rosy | Peña

Hi Beauties! It’s Friday again! I feel like the week flew by! Today’s look is all Boho Vibes! Using two separate patterns from McCall’s Pattern Company. I originally was going to make the Dress Version of M7391, (View D but to be totally honest here, I chickened out! Mostly because I had never used eyelets before and If I messed up I didn’t want to have to scrap the whole dress! Let me tell you though they are nothing to be scared of! Once I got that first eyelet in, much like when I started sewing, I was HOOKED I whipped through the rest of them and wanted MORE! Lol. I am for sure making this in the dress version! Nonetheless this Lace up top is AMAZING! I explain in the pattern review below how I modified the dress in to this crop top version. I did’t write a review on the skirt but it is Butterick #5892 View C, only modification I did here was make the ruffle shorter in the front than it is in the back because I wanted even more of the high-low look than is illustrated in the pattern. I’m really happy with the way this look turned out! Let me know what you all think! Have an awesome weekend everyone! XOXO.


Pattern Description: Loose-fitting, pullover tops and dress. McCall’s 7391

Pattern Sizing: Xsm, Sm, Med. I cut the Xsm.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Sort of, I made one alteration.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes I thought they were pretty straight forward.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I LOVE the lace up style with the eyelets. I liked how easy it was to modify into a top version.

Fabric Used: Faux Suede from

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: All I did here was bring the hemline up to about 1″ below the waistline to the front and the back pattern pieces.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? For SURE to both.

Conclusion: This pattern is a must have for anyone who loves the lace up trend! Definite keeper!

  1. Hi, Rosy
    I am a woman of a certain age who has been sewing since my early 20’s. I too went through a tough divorce and raised my daughter while working full time. I have always loved fashion, so sewing my outfits for work was what kept me very busy all my adult life. I admire your blog and style so much! Keep it going, you have a lot of talent! I have to wonder, you are young and small, no fitting issues! Do you make muslins first before you cut into your treasured fabrics? I feel at my age and the way my body has changed, it is very necessary! This can be a little intimidating! Keep up your great work!

    1. Hello Loretta, I can relate with you so much through this comment and already feel a connection with you. Sewing has gotten me through a rough time in life and continues to be a “safe haven”. When I sew I feel free and inspired! Thank you for your many compliments it truly means a lot! 🙂 As for the fitting, I’ve come across very few issues, I have a bit of a sway back but it hasn’t caused major issues with the garments. I’ve only had to take in a bit at side seams. I’ve never sewn a muslin but when initially learning I went though many “test” garments to practice. I’ve been asked about fit before and it definitely is on my list of something I would love to gain knowledge in as it is a very important skill in sewing! 🙂 Thank you so much for your comment and wisdom it is greatly appreciated! XO

  2. What a very cute outfit! Your top is very cute and if I hadn’t read this post, I would not have known it was faux suede! Very lovely!
