Vogue 8634 Cowl-neck Tunic

I was going to make that McCall’s dress but then I decided I needed a sweater more than another dress. It’s been chilly here. Like in the high 20’s and low 30’s. I used the same terry fabric as I did in this red dress. I didn’t have enough fabric to make long sleeves so I made longer “short” sleeves. I like the pattern although there is some pulling across the bust and the seam is a little high on the bust instead of under the bust like I think it’s supposed to be. This fabric isn’t really all that stretchy so maybe that’s part of the problem. I do need to lower the top section a bit. I think I’ll make it again in another sweater knit.

ETA: One thing I forgot to mention yesterday is that I took it in about two inches around the waist and then left the hip area alone. Otherwise, it was very loose.

 

I like the length with this pair of jeans and my boots. I really like the drapey neckline.

Wow, I look really washed out in these photos. I swear to you that I’m not sick or ill. It much just me the early morning light and the flash.

I "think" I'm surprised that the under-bust seam isn't. You will probably lower that seam the next time, because I like the look on you.

I have this pattern in the pile to do next. Love your version. Your hair sure has gotten long.. I love it.

I like that top on you and I think I have that pattern in my stash, going to dig it ot.

Lisa said...

You look great , I do really like this on you. I think you really suit red.

This pattern style looks great on you. I have this one in my stash and will someday get around to making it up I am sure. Not sure it will look as flattering on me as it does on you.

Funny- I just made two of this pattern this week, and have at least one more planned! I lowered the seam about 5/8" on one of the tops, and eliminated it on another because it's a print so won't show up anyway. Very nice top!

I just finished this one, but I eliminated the bust seam, also this pattern has a lot of ease in it, so the one I made, was too big. Your's looks great and fitted on you, mine was too loose and not fitted at the waist like yours. After seeing your's I think I'll try it it again, but I'll have to buy the other pattern enveloppe with the smaller size.

The Beast is a place and the social decay which emerges. The Anti-Christ is the bullshit.
The Anti-Christ is the positioning, whether enforcing the historical perception of the Holocaust, refusing to acknolowdge the existance/capability of Artificial Intelligence or the clone host fakes who infest society's upper eschelons, those who the gods use to enforce the BigLie which compells people to incurr evil through temptation.
Everyone "going along" is part of the problem. Ironically, this may be where you "earn" your place in the Apocalypse and your "consolation prize".
This is the REAL battle of good and evil. Take it or leave it.
