Pattern Review: Vogue 1109 Knit Top

Style Tip: This top can be easily lengthened to create a stylish dress.

This review was originally featured in Threads #147 (February/March 2010).

Vogue 1109

This Sandra Betzina knit top has 10 pattern pieces and looks complicated at first, but with thorough instructions and well-illustrated diagrams, the sewing is broken down into readily understandable components. This design naturally lends itself to color blocking, and the seam placements beautifully flatter a number of different body types with slimming lines. The three-quarter-length sleeves have tucks at the front and back elbow, and there is a flattering front horizontal band at the raised waist. Our tester stresses the importance of transferring the match points accurately because several angled seams must match perfectly to execute the design.

(Sized Misses’ A–J for busts 32–55 in.)

Style Tip: This top can be easily lengthened to create a stylish dress.

-Tested by Margrete Olsen, Danbury, Connecticut
