V9026 Details

I have been able to sew for a couple of days now during my staycation. I gave you a glimpse of Vogue 9026 recently and now I have some additional photos showing more detail.

I really like this pattern and do plan to sew more of it. I had to make several fitting changes as I normally do which included a FBA, a FSA, sway back adjustment and a back length adjustment.

With the FBA I did not want to keep the created dart from the adjustment and removed that dart using a tutorial from Debbie Cook at "STITCHES & SEAMS". (It may not be there now, but I burned that technique into my brain to use; it really works.)

Here are a few photos of the top on a hanger as well as me wearing:
Forward side seam

Front

Sleeves with contrasting band
With the removal of the dart extra width was added through the center front piece and I had to adjust the hem band to make sure that everything would line up. The pattern calls for a specific amount of stretch and if you choose to use less than that you need to allow for extra width in the hem band as the stretch of the band is significant to fit the bodice. I had planned to use the solid black fabric for the hem band and realized that the black fabric did not have the necessary stretch to fit. Fortunately the animal print knit met the required stretch factor.  The sleeve bands require considerable stretch as well, again test the stretch of your fabric.

This is a warm top as the fabric is fairly heavy and given that we had a couple inches of snow today I stayed fairly comfortable while outside wearing this under my pea coat.

With this top finished I started the McCall's knit top. That top is almost complete and another post to follow to give you more detail.
