Another view of V9026

I made this top from Vogue 9026 pattern.  It is now OOP.  This is my second top from this pattern, using different view.  I made View C.

Here is my first version
I wear this top fairly frequently.  I find that it works well for casual as well as for work with slacks,
This one was made from leftover fabric from a dress I made.

The fabric for the new one is from two sources, the solid winter white is from Fabric Mart and the textured fabric is from Style Maker Fabrics.  Both are double knit.

This was my part of my OOTD last week worn with wool pants from Talbots.  The top felt warm and comfortable for the cold temperatures. The cowl collar is not very deep nor drapey as it may appear on the pattern envelope.  I did add cuffs for this version as I thought the textured fabric would be a nice accent to the front.  I made the sleeves a little wider with this version as they are somewhat tight with the first version.

I do plan to continue to use this pattern as I like the look of it.  I may try the v-neck, I am not a real fan of v-necks on me.  Will see.

Here is the view of the back, which has a center back seam and this works well for adjusting for swayback if you have that fitting issue as I do.
I completed the Sew House 7 Toaster Sweater and will write a post soon about this pattern.


  1. I really like your top Linda. The first one reminds me of the new Indy Toaster pattern that I've been trying to talk myself out of buying.

    1. Thank you! I actually just completed the Toaster Sweater, Version 2. I like it except at the neckline, it feels like it bunches up. I made some adjustments to the pattern and going to try it again. This Vogue top is a little more fitted than the toaster sweater.

  2. Very nice use of the two fabrics Linda!

  3. Love both tops! I can see how you would get a ton of use out of both of them.

  4. This is a very flattering top on you. It's elegant and cozy looking. Very versatile garment!
