Are you getting sick of seeing my summer wardrobe yet? Can you handle one more top?
This is from Vogue (V8392). Yep, a pattern! I used a pattern this time. Well, for the most part anyway. This was supposed to have a 2" wide collar piece around the neckline but I couldn't figure out what the pattern was talking about so I made bias tape instead. When that worked well I decided to scrap the sleeves the pattern called for and trim the armholes in bias tape too! I think I like it better than it was supposed to look anyway. The back has a hook and eye closure which is much less intimidating than a zipper, but really doesn't stay as good. The lighting in the picture isn't great, so here's a close-up of my fabric. $2.40 per yard at Wal-mart. Very nice surprise! Now, I just need to whip up some navy blue pants to match. You might have to wait a while for those!!
