Vogue 8925 – Knit Tops

IMG_4892

I need to add some casual tops to my wardrobe for a vacation we are planning next spring. This print I picked up at Tissus Mode De L’Orme in Granby, QC was so interesting that I wanted a very simple style to showcase the fabric. Vogue 8925 fit my needs. I like the princess seams in the front as well as the neckline.

For the blue print I made a shorter version of View C.

I like the depth of the back neckline.

I made a second top with the same pattern but this time I made View B with its applied neckband, lapped princess seams and raw edge finish on all edges.

I chose to sew the sleeve to the top with a regular finish rather than the lapped seams shown on View A and B.

I found this knit at Fabric Outlet in San Francisco (known as Cali Fabrics on-line). My fashion photographer and I happened to be in the Mission District so I decided to pop in and check it out. The store is currently in a temporary location while they undergo some remodeling. Even in their temporary space I found the store to be well organized and easy to get around.

Both of these tops were quick and easy to sew.

This cutie decided he wanted to be part of the photo shoot.

I made the tunic version, View C, last fall.

  1. I was thinking about a too with a raw edge finished neckline. Was the top’s neck edge turned out and the band applied over it? If not, could you explain how it was done? Thanks in advance. I think all three tops are very attractive!

    • Thank you Cynthia. The top neck edge is left unfinished. You apply the unfinished band on top having the top edges meet. This create two unfinished edges at the top (the top of the neck edge and the band). Hope that helps give you understand how it is created.
