Vogue 9109 – Easy Summer Tops

There have been some great versions of this top made by sewists out there. Some have even turned the pattern into a dress. I’ve admired them from a distance until my friend Jennifer made a cute top with with this pattern a month ago. Fortunately Jo-Ann’s had Vogue patterns on sale that week.

I made View A with an Italian cotton voile that I purchased from Britex a few years ago.

I made View B with a polyester print from Hancock’s that I had purchased for another project that never got sewn. The pattern calls for purchased bias tape but I made my own. I thought the purchased tape might be too stiff for these two fabrics.

I haven’t seen the last of this pattern. These tops are quick to sew and are perfect for summer.

  1. Both of these tops are very pretty and stylish Lucy. Now I’m inspired to sew a couple of cool tanks for the summer. I’ve never used cotton voile, but I hear good things about it, especially for lightweight tops. It’s always nice to finish a project quickly and get such a great result as you have.

  2. Nice tops Lucy. Very fresh and cool looking, and I love your complete contrast in colours, both of which you wear well.
