Love. This. Top.
Even with all its wrinkles after a day at the office.
I was browsing Chico's website a few weeks past and saw this "Chrissy Cape Pullover" in the clearance section.
I loved the look, but didn't purchase it, even at the clearance price of $24.99, as I rarely purchase clothes without trying them on first (I have the hardest time finding anything in RTW to fit me!)
That's when I remembered I had purchased a Vogue pattern with the faux cape sleeves some time ago. Sure enough, in my pattern stash was Vogue 8907 from 2013. It's now out of print.
I dug through my fabric and discovered a black stretch silk. The fabric was narrow, but I had just enough to to cut view A.
I cut a straight medium, did a full bust adjustment and made no other alterations. I eliminated the facings and finished the edges with narrow bindings. Even if I had wanted to add the facings, I couldn't as there wasn't enough fabric left. I wanted to finish the edges with bias bindings, but due to the shortage of fabric cut the bindings on grain with the stretch.
The cape sleeve is gathered and placed at the front of the armhole and secured with the armhole binding.
It's a fun top. Fun to sew, fun to wear. I wish I hadn't waited four years to sew the top, but I'm glad the design is still in style.
