Vogue 1259 - Donna Karan Draped Top
Thank you all for the nice comments on Baby V's outfit. I haven't made these sorts of little outfits since my daughter was that little. Since she's 13 now, so that's been a while!
For my next project, I've chosen Vogue 1259, just the top. I liked the draped look and after looking at the pattern pieces thought it would be a good challenge. I have some gold jersey that I got from Fabricmart a while back when it was on sale. It was one of those fabrics that was cheap enough, and I thought the color was going to be a little different and just decided not to send it back. At any rate, if I don't end up liking the top no harm done!
The pieces are certainly interesting and have to be cut single layer; I've already cut out a few in the photo below:
I'll be sure to mark this one properly, as there are a lot of notches, circles and squares that will be needed to make this top correctly. I think I'm going to have to follow the directions, too, which will be a challenge, since I don't always follow the directions!
This should be a fun one!
Parting Shot: Boott Spur. Yep. That's it, and yes there was snow and clouds. Not very exciting, but the snow and ice was. These are the first signs that winter is on the way!
