My weekend was pretty busy but not much sewing. I did a little "cross border" shopping with my mom. Then the snow came, freezing rain and a lot of shoveling.
I had a chance to play outside with my little person. It's amazing how much fun they have in the snow, and the don't feel the cold. Sadly, I didn't have much time to sew as I have a few projects on the go. If you remember, I have a 50's dress that I want to sew, plus with all the fabric I recently purchased, I wanted to sit and do some project planning.
I did, however, manage to do a small project with the VERY soft striped sweater knit that I have in my fabric collection. I used Vogue 8688, which is now out of print. It was so easy to put together. There are a few different views, I used view C. As I am sewing this project, I look outside and see how much snow is coming down, so I decide to add a turtle neck to the pattern, I figure I might as well be work.
Pattern Description: Vogue 8688
Pattern Sizing: I cut XS
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Exactly like the picture
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the ease of this pattern. If you want something quick and easy, this is the pattern for you. You can make it longer to create a tunic style top or shorten it.
Fabric Used: I used a stripe sweater knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I add a turtle neck style collar to the sweater. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Um, not sure if I would sew it again. Although it was easy and quick, I don't know if I will need another top like this. But maybe.
Conclusion: Great pattern for beginners. You can do a lot with the fabric used.
