Hi, I am hoping to find a pattern that will help me recreate this top Mod Cloth Reading Corner Top



I know I wont get anything exactly the same, but something similar would be a great start.
The features I like the most are the princess seams, the front buttons and the hem. I do like the the neckline too.

Thanks :)

Oh, pretty. I don't have any suggestions (yet) but I love Modcloth's clothing.

My goodness, what a challenge! Searched for you and couldn't find any patterns to match exactly.

Best bet would be morphing two or more patterns to get the look you want. Say vintage McCall's 6035 (view A) for the main body, Vogue 8976 for the side hemline and adding a small shawl collar. Ties are easy to add to the back seam lines.

Hope this helps a bit. :)

I also love Modcloth!

For the basic shirt shape, I was thinking of M6167, but yours looks more like the front of those long cardigans with the "points" at the CF seam/opening (like this or this, and M6167 has the "points" on the side seam instead.

Looking even closer, I now see the princess seams, and might try to combine the front/hem shape of the cardigan with a princess top (like S3789 or the JJ Blouse). The JJ has very similar sleeves, but shoulder princess seams.

Super quick response........

Style Arc, and surely others, have some blouses where the neckline becomes a mini lapel collar, you could add the short rounded collar to that design.

Thinking a princess seam version of the above could be modified in the body - lower part of princess seam altered to angle in towards the middle and side front and back panels flared or 'gored' out to achieve the drape. This would be a princess seam beginning at the armscye, not a princess seam starting at the shoulder line (although you could make either style work).

Oh, I like that. I just finished the Ann Cardigan by Sewing Workshop which has the same hemline/points. Think the JJ
blouse suggested would work for the top part . Will watch for
other suggestions.

Thanks every one I think I am going to have a go at modifying Vogue 8983
I am not sure yet what I will do about the collar. I do like the topstitched lapel but I may just make the front a simple V, at least for my first attempt. I plan to use a lacy, embroidered fabric so that will give the top detail anyway.

Just a warning - The JJ princess seams go to the shoulder, so may not work exactly the same.

However it's FREE (and has very similar sleeves), so may be worth trying anyway.
