Another easy top...

... Another Vogue 2980.
After my Moka version, I wanted to make a pastel, short-sleeved version for summer. You know how much I love this shade of blue... Heck, it even matches my blog's colour scheme. Now wait - you don't have to dress in your blog's colour?
The fabric is a slinky knit, by the way.

I haven't got much to say about this pattern -I just love the design, and this top comes together beautifully. This was also made during my sewing binge a couple of weeks ago. I haven't been able to do any sewing since (apart from a few gifts I've finally started on...).

Sorry to hit and run like that. Things have been good, but (surprise, surprise) busy. I'm on the home stretch of my dissertation, and I want it to be as impeccable acceptable as I can make it... I have also been preparing a paper for a conference, and have to send out another long one before the end of the month. But - I'm enjoying all this, and things are good!

Hoping this finds you all fine and happy! Happy sewing, friends.

Hello ma chère Isabelle !
Très joli petit haut, mais dis-moi, on dirait du velours, n'est-ce pas un peu chaud pour l'été.
En tous les cas, ce belu-gris tourterelle est très doux.
Bonne soirée !

Isabelle said...

Du velours ! Non, rassure-toi, c'est un slinky knit, un jersey très fluide. Bisous à toi ! :)

Carol said...

So pretty! I hope you are well ;-)

Looks very good. And in very busy times it's nice to sew a few uncomplicated things.

LauraLo said...

Isabelle, you look gorgeous, the colour suits you perfectly indeed and I love the design of the top. I thought it was velvet too before I read further and saw it was slinky.
I love your makeup too. Very flattering

This top looks so young and fresh on you. I have seen it made by others, but never really been interested. Now I'm reconsidering it...

This is a lovely top Isabelle! The colour is so pretty and I love the style, very flattering :)

Karen said...

You look wonderful and relaxed in your new top. I know it's not over, but you can see on your face that it's getting close. Beautiful top - not sure which one I like better, though this is a fabulous color on you.

Oh my goodness, that is a pretty, pretty top!
My heartiest congratulations to you for accomplishing all this work on your dissertation. You are almost there!

SweetPeaknits said...

wow, that top looks great

Jennifer/OH said...

This is a lovely top. What pattern #/brand is this? I have tons of lovely soft knits that our "leotard lady" from the gym has given me. She gives me big, huge bags of her leftovers from making the team uniforms. Many of these are suitable for this top. I would like to make the long-sleeve version in a deep plum "velvet" knit.

Tanya said...

Hi Isabelle!
Oh that top is lovely - looks so comfortable too. The nexk line is wonderful and I like how the shoulders shape it. Pretty! Agan, your sewing is so beautiful.

Tracy said...

Hi, Isabelle! LOVE the tops you've been making! This pale blue is lovely...So happy in four short months time Seb will be home again and no more back & forthing :o) So nice to catch up with your posts now we're back. We had FAB time in London...Now resting travel-weary feet and doing lots of laundry--LOL! Talk to you soon ((BIG HUGS))

Jennifer/OH said...

Me again...can I be more stupid!!! I think not. There is the name and number of the pattern right ther at the top of the post. Ignore my previous comment posted.

Dyan said...

That is a pretty blue, thanks for sharing your sewing adventures. I've been sewing more of late and find your pattern reviews really helpful as I delve into the world of garment making.Glad to hear everything is coming together with your thesis. Towards the end you just want to get it done in the most acceptable way possible, because of all the hard work you've put it. I hope it all goes well. Have a great weekend,
Dy

Congratulations on your latest finishes and your work of course! This top is my favourite as I believe that your favourite color also looks best on you ;-) Have fun! Ann

The fabric and top is gorgeous! I really like the color and texture to the fabric. It looks wonderful on you. :) Sounds like you are still really busy with writing right now. Even if you are polishing your thesis, you are still writing more papers? Goodness!
