Vogue 1306 - A new plan for November

This cute Rebecca Taylor t-shirt pattern has hanging around the loft for a while now. I really like the front side gathers, a little something more than a basic tee. And the slightly dropped back hem. I'm not crazy about the placket - but I don't have to sew it in either!

I found a beautiful 'heathered' interlock knit in JoAnn's in September. The heather is an iridescent thread, really unusual. It looks glittery, but it's not metallic. The back side has tiny stripes, so it would be perfect for a pattern in which both sides show. I think it will be lovely choice for this top.

We've had a string of overcast, drizzly days, perfect for sewing, reading, and knitting. Feeling blessed. And I hope everyone enjoys a nice weekend.

Bye for now - Coco


  1. I've seen that fabric in Joann's too. I'll be interested to see how your top turns out:)

  2. I tried this top last year and was stymied by the fit. It was really hard to alter for petite. I'm looking forward to seeing it on you-I love the pattern!!

  3. Hello Coco! I am your new follower via bloglovin'. I found your blog from "make a garment a month challenge"
    You had a nice plan for November... l can not wait to see your top. Happy sewing!

  4. I have not tried this top, nor is it in my stash. Just doesn't suit my figure, but I think it is going to be a delightful top for you!

  5. I have pulled this pattern out to play with several times and the neckline seems oddly fitting to me. Come on Coco- make me a convert- I know you can!!!!

  6. Hi Coco - it's a pretty little top - it will be interesting to see how you make it work - and you usually do.


I love it that you came by...and thank you for your comments! Coco
