First things first. I am soooo sorry for all of the ongoing blog changes over the last few days. I am working really hard to add tabs/buttons to help navigate through the many patterns I have now managed to complete. Once I finish, you will be able to read about my latest FO like usual on my main blog, but can then click a tab title if you want to see what else I have made using that pattern company. With that being said - I have used almost 60 different patterns, not including Burda magazines and the times I have done the same piece three or more times.....ahhhhh - please be patient. I think it will even help me get a better understanding of what works for me and what doesn't and maybe will even nudge me closer to my desire of pattern construction.
Now for the good stuff! I have completed a new Vogue top. This has a beautiful cowl neck that is constructed in a way that I have never seen before. It is labeled as "Very Easy Vogue" with only 4 pieces. That didn't mean I wasn't able to flub it up the first time by burning a whole through my initial double knit fabric. lol. Here's my second attempt. It took one "For the Love of Ray J" episode along with part of a "Law and Order".
I surged most of thie project, except for heming the neckline, sleeves, and hem. Of course I could have used the serger and done a coverstitch here as well, but it was just as fast, since my Nina was already out. I think this is a great work wardrobe piece that is also super comfy. I know this will not be the last time I make this one.....
P.S. The Pattern Review Wardrobe Contest has opened for voting...keeping my fingers crossed. lol.
