Somebody Stop Me

I made another Vogue 8793.  Just in time for the end of Jungle January hosted by Pretty Grievances.

This time I used some cool cheeta poly/lycra and brown slinky from my stash.  It was kinda like a stash safari.  I used the brown slinky for the back.

And as you can see, I had fun with the cuffs.  I apologize in advance for the out of focus photo.

I did make the sleeves a bit wider this time, and I like the results.  Instead of a collar or collars, I just cut a 2 inch piece of the brown slinky, stitched the ends together, folded it in half and stitched it to the neck edge.

Overall, I am still a little ambivalent about this top.  The bottom of the top is wide, and I am use to wearing my knit tops tighter around my hips, however, I do like how it skims over the figure faults.  I think the next one I make though, I will decrease the ease in the hip area to give it a more sliming silhouette. I did add 1/2 inch to the sleeve width, and they fit a lot better now.  This top is such an easy make, I am sure I have a few more to make up.  I really should do one with the collar treatment  that the pattern calls for.  As always, thanks for stopping by.

  1. Haven’t had time to sit and follow all the blogs I have chosen to follow but loved waking up this morning and seeing the things that people have created, yours included. I think I’ll have to find some time to get back into sewing again! :)
