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.
