Just a quick post on this one.
I made this top, Vogue 8636, a while back and I just want to say that it's a good pattern. No modifications with this one to make it wearable,just the addition of a bust dart which I later changed to a row of ease stitching. I prefer that method to a dart on a knit garment. For more info on this method, look here on Diana's Sewing Lessons.
The design of this Marci top is very simple and very 70's isn't it! The fun part is how you can change it up and satisfy your creative urge.
I used three fabrics for my version... the black polka dots and the white are both rayon lycra and the neck and cuff bands are stretch mesh with a litlle flower design.
I decided to go with white top stitching for contrast.
The sizing was generous and I didn't need any extra at the side seams of the size 12.
This version is best suited to spring and summer but I'd like to try one for winter ,maybe in a soft sweater knit this time.
Hope you 've found time to sew this weekend!
