Review: Vogue 8879 | The 'Not-so-plain‘ White T-shirt!

12:30 PM

I've never been a t-shirt kinda girl.  If I'm going to wear a white knit top, it better have some kind of interesting detail about it.
Like this one!  I love the back of this shirt.  This is Vogue 8879 - view B.  It's an open back drape top.  
It was very easy to sew and I only had to add an inch to the length.  And I decided to omit the sleeve bands and just have a plain cap sleeve.
I added clear elastic to stabilize the neckline and the shoulder seams.  Because I could easily see the lightweight rayon spandex knit stretching out of place.
The fabric was perfect for this style of top.  Because you need to use a knit fabric with significant drape.
And I love how effortlessly it paired with my sequin pencil skirt from Asos.com and my DV by Dolce Vita sandals.

  7. ooooohhhh I get scared sewing t-shirts!! I don't know why?!! I guess its because its so simple that it has to be perfect and then I get intimidated. I've sewn 3 tshirts and the came out pretty well, but I always get nervous thinking about sewing them. The drape is a very interesting touch!
