Vogue top

Vogue 8581

I don't sew many Vogue patterns, although I've managed to collect quite a few (uhmm like 78, but whoz counting). No real reason, but that's already changed,lol. I've been meaning to finish this top for some time, and as I joined Mz.Faye for the, "Spring Month of Tops", I decided to add this top to my completed list. Although I probly wont wear it this spring, it'll be ready for the Fall!

Pattern Description:
Tunics A, B, C have front and back upper gathers, neck binding, lower elastic casing and raglan sleeve variations. A: sleeves with elastic casing. B: three-quarter length flared sleeves. C: gathered sleeves and sleeve binding.

Pattern Sizing:
sizes range 8-24, I used the 14, and made view C.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, very

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I like that it was very easy to make, and pretty forgiving to wear.

Fabric Used:
A knit fabric from Walmart

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

This was a very easy top as stated by Vogue. Very Hippy and goes great with heels and a pair of jeans.

Thanx for visiting!

Nice! It would be perfect for spring here, since it doesn't get really that hot most days and it's still raining a lot. Indeed, with a couple of jeans and some great heels I think this would be perfect!

I made this one up too, but I am still unsure how I feel about it. I made it too big, and even after taking quite a bit out, I'm not sure if it flatters me. The longer sleeves on yours looks great, so I may want to try that variation before I give up on the pattern. Yours just looks so good!

This looks so good and I like the fabric you've chosen.

Very nice. Betcha you'll get a lot of wear out of it.

I love this top and the fabric's color and texture! I just noticed that I've missed the last several items you've sewn and was so glad to catch up. I love your Jalie jeans and the other tops you've sewn as well. I'll be sure to keep up with you (I'll add you to my page) because I love your style!

Sandy said...

I just discovered your blog.
All of the outfits you've made are gorgeous. I too have done the Jalie stretch jeans, and LOVE them to the maximum.

I'll be visiting again.
