Life has been busy, but I still like to accomplish something on my sewing wish list. Vogue V8831 was a perfect choice for the leftover fabric from my daughter's dress.
The heather plum double knit was from Vogue Fabrics. After I cut out my daughter's dress, I still had large chunks of fabric left, but not enough for a regular top for me. Since I had bought the fabric for myself, I was determined to find a pattern that I could "piece together" a top.
Time requirements for this top:
cut out: 20 minutes
thread your machine: 5 minutes
serge the top together: 10 minutes
thread your coverstitch machine: 5 minutes
hem top and sleeves: 10 minutes
Total: 50 minutes!
I chose View B for the top, used the C cup pattern piece, and added 1" to hem.
Poof! This top is done!
