In Between

Before I could cut out the McCall's pattern mentioned in my previous post, I needed to prepare the fabric for cutting and sewing. I decided to pull out another top pattern that I have been wanting to make.The pattern is Vogue 9026.

Nakisha, "The Sew Crafty Chemist",recently made this top. There was a another review of this pattern on Pattern Review.  I have seen similar sweatshirts on various websites such as Ann Taylor, The Loft, Dillards and more. I decided I wanted to use fabrics left over from a recent dress I made. This too is fabric from EOS.

I have made most all of the normal fitting adjustments I have to make and have pin fitted the pattern prior to this. I still need to make a 1 inch FBA. It is so cold here in southern Virginia today that my usual Saturday morning exercise at the YMCA did not happen, meaning I was not prepared to go out into the cold 20° temperatures.  The best use of my morning was to be in my sewing room.

Updates to follow.


  1. Can't wait to see yours. I gave mine to my niece. i want to try it again in something not as thick as the medium weight ponte I used.

    1. I caught some sort of stomach virus so most of my sewing day this past weekend was not as planned. I did finish cutting out the fabric for this top and I am using a midweight ponte so my results may not be as good as I thought. If not I will have just used up leftover fabric and not my newer knits.
