Vogue 8879

This is one of the patterns I bought on one of my pattern-buying binges. It’s a pullover top with different variations (it’s a nice T-shirt pattern). There are several things I really like about this. It’s very easy and quick to sew (like, a couple hours start to finish even if you’re slow). I made mine almost entirely on the serger. I made View A which has the 3/4 sleeves; then I made A with shorter sleeves. I like that the shirt is longer in the back which makes it visually interesting, but also covers the rear if you make it long enough. I like that because it can be worn as a tunic.
This is the first one I made from a lightweight cotton knit (bought at Hobby Lobby, of all places). As you can see, the neckline is low (too low for me). I figured it would be, but wanted to make it anyway. So the next one I made, I raised the neckline by a couple of inches. That worked out really well. This one is a cotton knit fabric.

You can also see the length of the top. Then I made a short-sleeve top from a rayon poly knit fabric (I’ve had the fabric so long, I can’t remember the exact name of it) Anyway, the short-sleeve is nice as well.
I basically made all of these in a weekend which is a record for me. I figured I had the pattern out and had already made the alterations, I might as well keep going! I’d like to make a couple more from a lightweight cotton knit, because when it gets hot here in the summer, it gets very humid as well.
That’s all for now. Happy sewing everyone!

  1. It really is very easy. Just remember to raise the neckline unless you don't mind wearing a tank top underneath. Otherwise I found it too low for my taste. Thanks!

  2. Thank you for sharing this nice simple top. I'm going to forward the link to a new-to-sewing friend if you don't mind. This looks easy and modest!
