Vogue 8229 Again

vogue8229 002
Finished another top version of Vogue 8229 with some fabric I picked up at Gail K’s.  (Gawd, I luv that store!) I did some more things differently, mainly, I left off the back darts.  I drew a new hem right below the back dart markings, but I think I could go a bit lower.  I didn’t use a zipper, this top slides overhead easily.

Back View
I did leave the center back seam, cutting two back pieces (as opposed to turning it into one piece) because the cb seam in this pattern is curved.  Hmm…maybe next time I make this I’ll eliminate it and straighten out the line.

The armhole was turned under and finished using satin bias tape.

As much as I like this pattern and this style of neckline, I get tired and lazy with all the handstitching that’s required.  Here, I needed to understitch the neck edge with a hand prick stitch.

I was planning on hand-stitching the facing and collar together at the outer edges, but I got impatient and topstitched instead.  It turned out nice enough.  I like this satin-y fabric.  It’s a poly blend and didn’t press well.  Plus, the fabric has glitter somehow embossed on the surface, so pressing was kept to a minimum.
