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.
