Vogue 8581 Top

This Vogue pattern 8581 is my first realization.

Top Vogue 8581
I made the top with a blue two-way stretch cotton knit. The pattern is easy but I had some difficulties to sew the knit fabric. It's probably because it's not a good idea for a beginner to start with a stretch knit!

The only modification I made was to use a 1/4" elastic instead of a 3/4".
I will probably use this pattern again!
I made a longer review here:

Hi y'all,

Welcome to my new blog!
Today, August 11st, 2010, I'm creating the english version of my french/english sewing blog [Kikuyu]
To keep trace of everything I've done until now, I will put all my sewing with the same date than the [Kikuyu] blog.

On this blog, there will be all my sewing with english comments, and on the "older" one will become a french-only version.
plus, the older one will also have all my sister (KiKou) sewing, so if you're interested you can still check it out, even though it's only in french!

Good visit
