Dottie McCuteytops

I made this, the top from Vogue 2925 this afternoon, in about an hour, including tracing out the pattern. So quick and easy. The fabric is a cotton lycra knit from Spotlight.
I didn't have high hopes for this for some reason, but I love how it turned out. I love how it is only two pieces, yet has some nice detail. The scoopy neck! The pleaty cap sleeves! The little bit of side gathering!

I had to do a flash shot indoors, it's so dark and rainy today. Moody weather.

It passes the test of a successful afternoon's sewing...I am going to wear it out tonight.

That's delightful! No wonder there are so many rave reviews (thinks: how come I have had this pattern for ages and haven't make it yet? Curses!)
