Vogue 8565

Good morning!  I think I’ve mentioned here before that I love CABI clothes. The styles are classic, and the quality of the construction means that pieces last a long time.  I bought several things from the Spring ‘12 line, but I wanted more (of course). 


CABI Float Tank $74

I liked the stripes and the A-line fit, plus the front pleating detail.  Here’s my version, using Vogue 8565




I used a great stripe knit from Gorgeous Fabrics, similar to the RTW piece.  The pattern has the same A-line shaping, with a cute center front treatment.  I prefer a cap sleeve to a tank top, which is why I chose this pattern.


There are 6 quarter-inch tucks across the front, easy to do.  The pattern is super simple to put together, just a front and back. I turned under the sleeves and bottom hem:


I finished the neckline with pre-finished bias tape.  You can make this top in a few hours.  Here’s a few modeling shots:




  1. I love the pleats on the stripe- it’s such a neat look. Love it.

  2. It looks fab on you. And those pin tucks are so cute.

  3. Wow. I live it. I wish you had Posted this earlier on the week. I would have bought the pattern with the new Vogues. Will try to snag it at Joann Fabric’s new sale. Cabi clothes always get me inspired.
