I made the long-sleeved view D with a little bit of modifications.
First, I used the knit mesh from Fabric Mart over the entire top, not just the front. Due to its sheerness, I used a solid blue ITY knit, also from Fabric Mart for the underlay on the front and back bodice pieces leaving the sleeves sheer. I simply sewed the ITY/mesh pieces as one unit. I also did a ½ inch forward shoulder adjustment. I cut a size 16 neck and bust and graded to an 18 waist and
hip (my pattern only went to a size 16). The only other change I made was to shorten it by about 3 inches, it was very long on me.
This top is so stinking comfortable! And perfect for our spring with its variable temps. I love wearing it.
It's shown here with the tan slacks I made for the Wardrobe Contest (Vogue 8157) as this was intended to be part of my entry. Oh well, have a great top I love wearing and it looks really great with jeans. I enjoyed working with the knit mesh so much and enjoy wearing it so much I ordered some more and have it cut out already for another one of these.
Hope your spring sewing is going well. Happy sewing all.
