|Pattern Description: |
Average Vogue pattern~ V8718~ Jacket, Top, Dress, Skirt,and Pants
Sizes 6 through 20
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Instructions for this top is very easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the design of it. It's not your normal tee top.
I used a rayon-lycra knit. Very soft and luxurious feeling!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The only change I made was to add a facing to the back and I cut it and the front face a tad bit smaller so that when I stitched it to the top, it would create a little easing to draw the neckline closer to my body...worked like a charm.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm definitely gonna make it again. I highly recommend sewing this as close to your body measurements as possible for the best results.
In conclusion, It's a great top and a great wardrobe builder.
SN: This was actually a refashion project. I cut this fabric out to be Vogue 1257, but it didn't work out...somehow I cut one sleeve wrong, but you can read more about it here:
