Vogue 1522- Mood Fabrics' Eyelet

Vogue 1522 from Mood Fabrics' cotton eyelet


When ordering fabric at Mood Fabrics, sometimes it takes me a long time to decide, just too many options and decisions.  Then there are other times, the fabric is just perfect and I cannot get it into my cart soon enough.  That is the case with this Mood Fabrics’ Nanette Lepore Cotton Embroidered Eyelet, it was so gorgeous on the computer screen and even more beautiful in person.

I knew I wanted to use a pattern to showcase the border scallop and a simple design that let the fabric be the showcase.  I went through my patterns and selected  Vogue 1522 with  a couple of changes.  First thing, I did not want the side vents and the top needed to be just a bit longer.  I added about three inches to the length and at about five inches above the hemline, I flared out my cutting line just a bit.  No ruffle was needed for this sleeve, the scallops are just to pretty,, so I went with a wrist length and the pattern had enough flare.

All the seams are french seams and the neckline has fabric binding.  In my stash, I had the perfect color shirting to match the eyelet and I finished the neckline per the Vogue instructions

The scallops are such a nice detail for the hem and that sure does save some time when sewing, no hemming for the top or the sleeves!   Today is officially the first day of spring for the Northern Hemisphere and I did so enjoy sewing something in such a bright color.  March around here is cooler temperatures and lots of wind, I found it very difficult to find a spot for photos on Sunday.  The wind was trying to blow me away, or at least my hair!

Now a question for you….. When sewing fabric that is the star of a garment, what pattern do you use?



Disclosure - I receive a monthly fabric allowance from Mood Fabrics to make a garment.  These garment are blogged at Mood Sewing Network first and then I will blog here about this garment.

  1. Happy Spring Lori! I like that eyelet, both the color and the modern pattern to it. Great pairing of fabric and pattern for a very pretty top on you.

  2. Beautiful coral color, but what I like most (other than the scalloped border) is the square pattern of the eyelet. A bit unusual and more sophisticated than the normal flowered patterns I see. Another great addition to your wardrobe!

  5. I have just bought a remnant with scallops at my local fabric store, was thinking of a dress but after seeing your tunic might change my mind! It is so pretty. And yes, such fabrics deserve simple patterns!

  6. I love this tunic . I've always loved eyelet & border prints . This is a wonderful combination of both .
    A simple dress is my go to for showcasing a great fabric , but in reality I wear more tops so thanks for the inspiration.

  12. Lori, this top is lovely on you. The fabric is so nice! One question: How did you ever decide on this pattern from the ugly pattern envelope garment? I never would have even looked at it! Good vision finding a nice pattern!
