Vogue 8323


I have completed this top. I have to say that I am pleased with the fit and the top itself. I plan to make all three views. I made View B with the funnel/cowl neck. The shape of the center front and back pieces are unusual as the neck and self facing are all one piece that flows into the center front and center back piece. I wish I had taken a picture of this, but will when I make the next view. This has princess seams that allow for great fitting opportunities. I did have to make a FBA and I did the usual forward shoulder adjustment and swayback adjustment. The FBA created more width in the waist and hip area that I did not need so adjusted that area before actually cutting out the fabric.

The neck portion is very long and I ended up cutting off two inches at the top. I don't think I have a short neck nor long, average length. The neck is suppose to slouch around the neck line and mine did but it was too much. I think that I might could have cut off another inch without affecting the slouch and also not have the wrong side of the neckline show.

Here are some more shots of the top.
















This is look of the neck. I was trying to give you an idea of how much is the neck.












And another look of the neckline.













The fabric I used was a buttermilk knit that I acquired from Emma One Sock. It is a paisley design with warm browns, beige and soft gray.

  9. This top turned out nice. I really like the fabric you choose. I'm not a fan of those scrunchy necklines, but I'll keep your tip about the long neck in mind if I decide to sew that view.

  14. Thanks for the review on this pattern. I looked at it last weekend at Hancocks when V patterns were 3.99, but didn't buy it. Now I think I will.
