Review | Vogue 1020 Knit Top

Pattern Description: Vogue 1020 close-fitting top with side ruching.

Pattern Sizing: 6-12. I made a 10.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing? Yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn’t really follow the instructions. After joining the shoulders (I serged all of the seams), I sewed the sleeves in flat. (Now I wish had gone back and done the collar before the sleeves.) Then I sewed up the shorter side and arm (nixing the zipper) and used clear elastic to gather the longer side. Then I machine-basted the other arm, and serged the whole length for the finish. I didn’t have any trouble with gaping at the neck, and I used a double needle to finish all of the hems.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the ruching, 3/4 length sleeves, and the length of the top.

Fabric Used: Cotton stretch jersey.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I omitted the zipper.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I might sew this again in black. I would highly recommend this top. It’s very easy and a good wardrobe builder.
