Vogue 8952

Well I fell in love with this fabric. A loose slub knit, it's just gorgeous . Black with a whitish fleck and quite an open knit..
I thought it would make a lovely jumper to wear at night when its cool in Spring. I decided to make Vogue 8952 View C. A simple long sleeved top with a hi low hem.

It turned out well. I wanted it to be loose. I just added a black band around the neck to bring the neck in slightly, otherwise it would have  fallen off my shoulders too much.
The fabric was from Tessuti's and I also bought it in a stone colour. It was a little difficult to sew. It is easy to pull a thread and this causes runs. Plus it moves around a bit. This pattern was so easy to sew and came together easily. I love the back.
I am happy with how the fabric drapes which was the look I wanted. So I would recommend this pattern if you want a quick, easy, comfortable and loose top.

                                                     Happy Sewing!
