Vogue 8731

What are you most proud of? It fits beautifully. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Hand baste the horizontal tucks on the front before machine sewing. I don't think mine are done according to the instructions...for a very easy pattern, that part of the instruction was lacking clear direction.

Q&A with Screaming Mimi

Fire Girl asked:
I have this same pattern and agree that the 1. instruciton stich pivoting to the folds is very confusing. But your shirt looks great. Can you give me a close up on your tucks or more details as to how to do them? thanks so much and beautiful shirt I hope mine looks as nice. ;) Barb ;)
Screaming Mimi answered:
I just uploaded a close-up of the tucks, and neckline. I just did a straight tuck. On the neckline, instead of using bias tape for the facing as instructed in the pattern, I serged the edge, turned, pressed, and top stitched. If you don't have a serger, an overcast stitch on your sewing machine would probably work just as well. I just didn't want the bulk, or the "show through" of the bias tape.
