Vogue 1275 and what's next

Sewing Vogue 1275 was pretty easy-peasy until the neckline band.  The written instructions and the photo just don't seem to make sense.  After numerous attempts at understanding how to do it, I finally came up with what will be my best solution.  I think there were some finishing steps left out or at least for me there was; so when you are in these situations you just punt! Or make it work! 

I hemmed the other Vogue top yesterday with coverstitch machine and hemmed the sleeves for this pattern.  I have the hem for this pattern pinned and ready to stitch.

That now leaves two other patterns I wanted to cut out and sew.  I am rethinking about the solid brown knit pattern I had planned to use.  I have a McCall's tunic style pattern already fitted and I may go with that pattern, but using a different front piece (the pink one) that I have not tried yet.

Anyway, I will post photos soon of the two completed tops later today.

Now going to have some breakfast and then on to the sewing room.


  1. I am a *huge* believer in punting and making it work. Good luck with your tops!
