2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

BLOGLIKECRAZY DAY 2: WORK WEAR WEDNESDAY...

...this second Vogue 9402 woven tie neck blouse is a nice addition to my work wear wardrobe.  I paired it with existing brown self-made pants today, but feel that it will also work well with tan or beige skirts or pants for variation.

I'll call this pattern a success having it made it twice with no alterations at all (now that's a miracle in itself) and would highly recommend it to others.  I feel that it can be dressed up or down to fit your particular taste.  I'm not sure I'll make it again, unless I find some gorgeous fabric in black.

This 100% poly fabric was very comfortable because our temperatures, although still in the low 90's, are not sweltering like back in the summer.  Now let me see what I can get made for next Wednesday...

  7. Lovely! I saw the red one and loved it, too. It's funny how fabric choice can make the same pattern look so different.

    1. Thank you Cindy. The red one is my fav, but I love this one as well, and you are so right about different fabric - different look.

  8. Nice fabric; it gives your top a different look entirely from a solid color. Good luck picking out another fun pattern....unless you find that perfect black or some other color you love!

  9. Beautiful Ms. Faye! I really like this with the pants you paired it with! I also, think if you found a beautiful black fabric, this would be a gorgeous staple basic in your wardrobe. Good luck on next Wednesday's project!
