Vogue 8151 – Grey Knit Top

Pattern Description: Pullover tops with set in sleeves. A: wrapped front, band, shirred sides and long sleeves. B: top with three-quarter length sleeves and optional tie front. I made view B.

Pattern Sizing: 32″ to 55″. I used 32″ (A)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I found it very quick to construct.

Fabric Used: A grey rayon knit with 80% cross grain stretch.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:

* Round shoulder – I added 5/8″ to the back shoulder and took 5/8″ off the front shoulder

* High round back – added 3/8″ at the centre back reducing to zero at the side seam (FFRP page 124)

* Gaposison the front neck line – took out 3/8″ tuck via slash and pivot method

* FBA – added 3/8″ (FFRP)

* Sway back – 1/2″ at centre back to zero at side seams

* Full Arms – I added 1″ (FFRP page 169).

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes it is quick to make, and feels very comfortable to wear.

Conclusion: I will be making this up in other fabrics and will try some different necklines and finishes.
