This is me attempting to sew Vogue #8392's view B shirt.
And this is me attempting to look like a model (not!) I always edit my head outta the picture because I forgot to visit the hair and makeup department first.
Those sleeves looked so charming in the Vogue pattern drawing, but how ridiculous are they in real life?
About this pattern:
Paper pattern. #8392 Vogue comes in regular women's sizes.
The neckline and sleeves involved some pleats, then the neckline is faced. It's a pretty easy-to-make shirt.
What I changed: I had to add a three inch border to my finished shirt as it was quite short. You can see the line where my two fabrics meet. I was going to cover that line with a thin border of black ribbon, but I hadn't as of press time. The neckline is also wide enough to pull over my head, so I could have skipped the back closure suggested in the pattern. And those sleeves - the giant elbow balloons keep riding up into the crook of my elbow. Not too practical unless you stand stark still all day. They would be a great disguise if I suffered from fat elbows though, huh?
Today Brown Paper Packages is reviewing the Pleated Dress Top for girls and giving away two copies of the pattern. This girl knows how to model!
