Vogue 1306

My first top for the Top Sew Along is Vogue 1306.   I tried it on and I really like it.  I plan to take a vacay to the beach this summer and I see this as a loose fitting top for beachwear.

Here are a few shots of the top on a hanger; my Sunday appearance is not for picture taking of garments on me.
It still needs hemming as do the sleeves.  The back is longer than the front and this is not seen on the model wearing this version.  I like though.
















This is the back view.


















Here is a close up of the placket.  This was the most challenging part for me and coupled with fiddly fabric it became a real issue.  It is OK but need to learn how to do this better.

Final shot is the inside view of the fuse and gather tape.  It is a pretty good product to use as an alternative way of making gathers.  You lay the tape down so the blue thread is on top, the white thread is fusible thread.  You tie off one end of the blue threads and then pull the other end to make the gathers.

I think my next top is a repeat of a previous Vogue top I made with short sleeves.  The fit is perfected so just cut, sew and wear!

  4. Pretty top. It has a peasant-top vibe to it. I think it would look super with dark skinny pants or leggings.

    1. Yeah I keep thinking beach wear when I see it. Shorts or ankle length jeans would work.
