Pattern Review – Two versions of Vogue 8420

Emma made this loose-fitting tunic dress using pattern Vogue 8420 firstly out of 100% cotton ‘Pink Birds’- although the pattern says that it is suitable for † Moderate Stretch Knits Only. The scoop neckline makes this easy to pull on without requiring a zipper.

Emma modified the pattern by lenghtening the tunic into a dress and eliminated the elastic casing at the front – preferring to gather it in with its self belt.

Stretch fold-over binding was used on the neckline edge – this helped the neckline sit better as it gaped a touch after Emma self-lined the tunic with the upper front facing ( as is in this pattern )

This pattern has a few sleeve variations and here view B was used.

Emma lengthened the sleeves and omitted the self-lined upper facing in this wonderful wool knit version below – made up in 100% wool ‘Licorice Stripe’. Tessuti stocks a great range of wool knits in all our stores.
