Vogue 8151 Top

Vogue 8151 Top, view B.(Sandra Betzina.) This is the first time I've made this pattern. The fit is great. I am very happy with it. The only thing I would change next time is lengthen the sleeves by 1". The neckline is ever so slightly curvy :( however, I do have a Wearable Muslin :)

I made View B but I used the long sleeve pattern piece for View A.

I made this top with left-over Fabric from Vogue 7055 dress ,which is also a Sandra Betzina pattern.

I am now a Burda girl :) My magazine came in and I love it. Tracing the pattern is a little different......but once you find the lines, highlight them and trace them... Voila....done! And don't forget to add those seam allowances and hems. I used a tracing wheel and it worked great. I put my Spaceboard underneath and the perforations on the craft paper are then easy to see, and just cut the pieces out. I think I will like this magazine as the styles appear to be very stylish. There seems to be easy to make garments, like the T-shirt I've chosen, 10/06-#114, and there are also advanced.

I received a Sample issue which was 10/06 before my actual subsciption came in. That is a nice touch from the company.
