Vogue 7997 – long-sleeved tee with a twist


No surprises with this one, it wasn’t difficult to make and came out exactly as in the pattern’s drawing. I might redo the top’s hem slightly shorter… This turned out a bit long on my short frame.

Pattern Description: Close-fitting, pullover top has collar off the shoulders with elastic. A: cap sleeves. B: below elbow sleeves. C: long sleeves. All have elastic at sides. I made view B.

Pattern Sizing: 8-14. I cut a size 8 for the front and graded down to a 6 for the back.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, exactly.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yep.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the collar and the shirring.

Fabric Used:
Cotton-lycra knit

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I’ll probably sew it again, and I recommend it.

I need more long-sleeved tops for fall. This one is nice for an extra touch – I won’t wear it to work, but it’s perfect on evenings and weekends.

The following shows the shirring at the collar and side

That’s it for now. I haven’t sewn anything over the weekend. Although, I did get some new patterns and fabric… and I received my lovely contest prize from Onion patterns! More on that, later this week. It’s been a long day.

Wishing everyone a happy week!
