This is another UFO that has been lurking in the sewing room. Over the weekend I felt so accomplished when I finished this top and Vogue 8251. Both have been in a bag in a box for several months. Part of my sewing goals this summer and fall is to reduced the number of UFO's waiting for me in the sewing room.
Vogue describes this pattern as Misses' top: semi-fitted pullover tops have mock wrap fronts and banded neckline. A, B: short, banded sleeves. B: contrast neck and sleeve bands. C: three-quarter length sleeves.
I really like the mock wrap style and the banded neckline and sleeves. The instructions are exactly as the pattern indicates Very Easy Vogue. All level sewists can make this top with no problems. And the drawing is spot on for the style and look of the top.
- Mock wrap front
- gathered neckline
- Side shaping
- Banded neck and sleeve options
I made my usual pattern adjustments:
- FBA - The adjustments increases the width from the bust to the hem. You may need to make adjustments below the bust. For this version I didn't, but will decrease the width for future versions.
- Swayback - I added a center back seams as well. Also added the amount of the swayback horizonal tuck to the bottom of the back top pattern
- Slight prominent shoulder blade
I will probably make a few more of these in the coming months. Overall, I like this staple top a lot. And I recommend it to others if you have it. This is another one that is out of print. The copyright is 2006.
