Vogue 9205 is a cute little top that supposed to be a Very Easy Vogue. That implies quick to me. Doesn't it to you? I had a few hiccups along the way. First, I stitched those pleats in like darts. No wonder it looked so flat and lack-luster. So I had to pick all that out and re-sew it. They look good now that they're done properly.
Then I got interrupted by need now sewing first for the concert, then for Cancer Awareness Days at work.
Once I got back to it, this top just flew together. I made a size XL based on the finished measurements and did make a few alterations to it:
* Shortened the waist at the line indicated by 1 inch.
* Narrowed the shoulders 3/4 inch.
* Shortened the sleeve 1/2 inch at the hem.
The fabric is a nice wool/lycra blend from Fabric Mart. I found that it tolerated gentle machine wash and flat dry very well. I have some in orange, too; I thought these might be nice for hiking as a base layer. This one may have come out too cute to use for that. 😁
The next time I make this, and there will be a next time, I'll make it a size smaller and shorten it some more so it will be a more fitted top. Right now, I'm enjoying the loose, tunic feel of this one. It's just right for cooler spring days.
