Vogue 8793, I Love IT

I'm a Vogue woman! There I've said it!

 It often occurs to me that although I own many Simplicity, McCalls ,Butterick, Burda, New Look and Silhouette  patterns , I use Vogue by far the most often.

Today's Blog Post features once again a Vogue pattern.This one is another pattern that I immediately fell in love with as soon as the spring patterns came out a few months ago.....V8793 by Katherine Tilton






I was very inspired by Shams'  versions. but then, I'm often inspired by Shams's creations!!

Here is my interpretation.



The fabric is a cotton knit I bought on Rue St.-Hubert in Montreal last fall. I used the reverse side for one sleeve , one part of the collar and one cuff. For the other collar and cuff, I used a navy and white stripe also a cotton knit. The collar trim is a navy nylon separating zipper.






The fit on this top is a little loose fitting. Next time I would male it to fit more snugly , but I do love this first version. I got  a compliment from my daughter on this one. I thought she would think the collar treatment too bazaar for her taste.

I would really encourage anyone who has this pattern to give it a try. It's a great one.


 



I  also want to try this new pattern of Katherine Tilton's. I find it very intriguing. Its V8817

Great top, Diana. I purchased that pattern when it first came out. Have it setting out, but haven't come up with the right combo of fabrics just yet, darn it!

Neattop. The neck treatment is really unique and it looks great in the fabric you chose.

Vicki said...

the neck treatment is really flattering. I don't have this pattern, but it is very tempting.

I LOVE your version!!! Very nice! Yes, this is a *great* pattern! I also have the new Katherine Tilton pattern, but am not in a rush to sew it. It will be nice to see yours!

Great top! I thought this was an interesting pattern but wasn't sure about the neckline treatment. Now I think I'll pick it up.

What a great interpretation of this pattern, Diana. That neckline is terrific, and I LOVE your choice of fabrics!

Diana - I too bought this pattern based on Shams version, but love your one too - its so annoying when I see lovely outfits made from patterns I have and I have a sewing queue...lol

Beautiful work as normal.

That's a super looking top. Something like that would only be found in an upscale boutique! Nice work.
