Tee from Vogue 8679

Added Oct 16, 2010

Portland, Oregon...






This is the tee out of one of the newer Vogue Sportswear patterns. It also has a kind of cool jacket that I might try sometime. The project took about an hour from cutting to finish, super quick! It should really be a tad smaller, but the fit isn’t bad.

I just cut all my hair off a couple of days ago, crazy!

Material Notes

I used a heavy-ish cotton poly jersey in a really pretty steel blue color.




Garment Type
Cotton, Blends

    Haircut looks supercool on you! I cut mine of about a year ago and now starting to grow them back longer. And they’re red now! Necklace is interesting too, complites the look :)

    Look great … much better than the way it’s photographed on the Vogue pattern!

    Really nice! May I ask, how did you finish the sleeve edges? That’s what I struggle with the most when sewing jersey knit.

      The sleeves are finished with a serger, then just folded under in a 5/8 hem and topstitched on my regular machine.

      I normally find sleeves ok, it’s the sleeveless tops without facings that I find tough.
