Pattern Review – Vogue 8913

I had the pleasure of meeting Julie for the first time at Tessuti Surry Hills store yesterday, looking fantastic in this linen top and pant made up from pattern, Vogue 8913

The loose fitting pull-over tunic top is made up in 100% linen Beyond The Unknown (sold out) in view B. Julie opted for a less exaggerated back length to front ratio, so made changes to the top pattern by shortening the front and back lengths, as well as taking some length out of the sleeve length. For anyone curious to know, Julie’s top at CB finishes at 28.5″, the front lower panel and sleeve’s finished measurements are 6″ in length. The pants are made in one of our black linens in view C, she loves the style, but eliminated the waistband and tapered the legs in slightly to suit her shape.

Julie tells me she’s got the sewing bug back, so we hope we’ll be seeing a lot more of her!
