{Vogue 8032 (A)}

V8032-fV8032-b

This has to be one of the easiest patterns I have ever used and yet I find it is so overlooked. I personally {adore} this pattern. Flattering, versatile and have I mentioned super easy??!! haha

Ive sewn this version many times due to the fact that its such a great basic wardrobe builder so one can style this alone for a summer day over shorts or jeans or you can glam it up for an evening out. I even wear this under a blazer with a work suit – in both the green or the polka dot!

The only advice I would give on this pattern is to follow the collar placement dots really carefully otherwise you will have gaping at the armholes. If you are going to turn the collar to the side, then make sure you check the fit well before stitching it all together. Perhaps play with the length of ties for a longer wrap which would also look great.

Recommended as a great starter pattern for beginners but advanced sewers will have fun with this too.

    1. Hi Alethia – yes this does slip over your head but even if you turn the tie to the side, there is more than enough space to slip over. I left the back keyhole split (not only because it was already there) but because i thought it would add detail to the back where there would not be any if you stitched it closed. thank you for stopping by.

leave your keyboard shuffle here....
