Up until recently I have never used a Vogue pattern. I’m not sure why, but I think I assumed they were too difficult for me.
I was gifted some lovely polyester satin by Minerva and looked for a suitable pattern. I’m not sure how I ended up with this one, but I’m glad I did. Admittedly, it is a very easy Vogue pattern, but still I didn’t know what to expect.
I used it to make the long gold top as in the picture above and was very pleased with the outcome. Its not yet featured on the Minerva Blog, but goes live sometimes in January.
For the next Minerva project, I chose some light, drapes polyester crepe to make the other option, a shorter classic top with a cowl neck. I love the finished item and although this hasn’t yet gone live for Minerva I have worn it several times. It looks classy and expensive and I’m really pleased with it. I just want to make again in a real crepe, maybe in black.
