Vogue 1247 Revisited


This is the second version of this top I have made.  The first one is here.  I used a piece of mystery polyester op shop fabric and Vogue 1247.  The fabric is a lovely navy blue with a small white moon looking spot



I cut the fabric to a size 10, the same size as last time.  I did find the neck a little big on the original and it required bra strap stays to keep it from falling off my shoulders.  It was a little too deep in the v neck for my liking as well.  For this reason, I cut the neck a full 1.5cm smaller all of the way round which means it now sits nicely without any embarrassing gaping while still fitting over my head.



This top was an easy make and blends nicely with the lighter blue items that are favourites in my wardrobe.  It also matches my white Jalie Jeans.

    1. I like the seams as well. The tulips and poppy backdrop was borrowed from an elderly neighbour.
