4th top – vogue 7876

The last of the 4 tops is Vogue 7876, view B with sleeves.

I made size 16 based on bust measurement and the indicated measurement on the pattern. I should have used the 14 (or even 12) in the shoulders and a fabric with more drape. This is a nice cotton and the result is nice, but could have been better. In real life it certainly needs a cami underneath for modesty.

Detail of the closure

The back feels short. And Nancy, I must try taking up the shoulder a bit (as you said in your comment on my previous blouse). Same wrinkle here.

Now there is a pair of pants waiting to be finished and I’ve entered the RTW contest on Pattern Review. Want to make a muslin of the jacket I’ve shown earlier in the coming week.


  1. That is such a cute top. Mmmmmm,got to go see if I have it in the drawer.

  2. This is lovely. I think it is very flattering too.

  3. I really like the side closure detail, very cute! :-)

  4. It's a lovely. I am always looking for blouses that aren't buttondown.
    some nice new clothes.

  5. Very pretty. I love the style on you.

  6. Looks lovely Sigrid. I've made this up too and found I needed a lot of adjustments. I think the pattern must run big. Great style though.

  7. I am one of your most fanatic fan. I like everything you sew, but lingerie most of all.
    Looking at your garments I wonder if you ever considered that your problems are caused by your slender neck, thinner (and more beautiful) than the average. I see in almost every garment you sew, except knits, that they are too big (large?) in that area. The neck being too big, your shoulderline is not on its place but pushed towards the shoulderpoint, the shoulderpoint in the garment does not rest on your own shoulderpoint, etc. You get too much fabric on the Across Back Shoulder line.
    This is something I learned from MyLabel: start fitting the neck width. I hope I did not irritate you.
    Sorry for my English, I should have written in Dutch (also not my own language, but speak it better than English).

  8. The ring is a fun detail, I like this play on the classic white blouse.

  9. I like this a great deal. Not sure that you need the cami under but whatever makes you feel good.
