I love sewing new things but once in a while I get almost stuck on a certain pattern and sew it over and over again. That is what has happened with me and Vogue 8793, the pullover top designed by Katharine Tilton that I blogged about a couple of weeks ago.
I blogged about a blue top I made with the fantastic fabric Face for a Photo Shoot
and it turned out great, but somehow it was not enough. I have just sewed this pattern again in a combination of gray knits including Burnout Black on Gray Dots
and two others from my stash. I'll wear this next top with the black skirt I just sewed to wear to the Sewing Expo next week, or with black pants.
On this version I did not use the zipper as a design element, but the double collar is till striking. The collars could look cool with zippers or without, or perhaps with other border inserts. The Burnout Black on Gray Dots fabric sewed up beautifully and it is a great t-shirt fabric in general. This is a lightweight and semi-sheer fabric and I will definitely wear a camisole under it.
Next project will be a cardigan to wear with this top and the skirt.
