If I had known that this Vogue top was going to sew up so quickly, I would have gotten up early on Saturday morning (before all the hustle and bustle of the day) so that I could wear it later on that evening. It really was easy to put together and I’ve got to say, looks great on. I do think that it is a bit too large (just a bit too much ease for my taste) in the midsection of the top, right under the bust – but since the fabric is so light and drapey, it works. If I make it again with a beefier material, I think I’ll trim this area down some – I think it would just make me look ‘bulky’ otherwise. I highly recommend this one – even for beginners!
Back in September, I purchased a very fun and unusual ‘photo-realistic’ cable sweater knit fabric. As soon as I saw it, I knew exactly how I wanted to use it… I wanted to make a cowl-neck top. It wasn’t until last week that I finally decided on a pattern to use: Vogue 8634. I got the final push to make this top after finding a great pair of boots (on sale, no less) so I’ve opted to make the tunic length version and pair it up with black leggings.
