Vogue 8950

I am a seamstress that likes to sew in colorways, which means I do not have to change serger thread.  The other thing I like, is to use up all the fabric.  So, I decided to make Vogue 8950 with the leftover fabric from my Plantain t-shirt and from my Jorna Top




This is a fun pattern and perfect to use up some limited yardage of knits.


I made a 10 in this pattern, I really didn't want it over-sized too much.  It was so fast to make and I love the style.



Yes, you have been seeing red in my sewing of late. And guess what?  You will be seeing more!  I have a pair of shorts to blog and a blouse to cut out.


Thanks so much for the comments and advice on my Jorna top, I appreciate all the ideas and advice.  I ran out of time and ended up wearing it to the b-b-q as pictured in my blog post.  I was truly fine with length and hem curve. Actually, I felt great in my top, it was fun for the event plus cool!  Thanks again.

    1. Thanks, Carolyn, I am on a top roll but I sure needed to be. My summer tops usually only last one season, I tend to get something on them or just wear them out!

  8. Sometimes I choose my sewing projects based on the color thread in my serger too :-). This is a great top on you and red really suits you.
