Fun bat wings tops - Vogue 8771
I am a big fun of bat wings tops. Most of them are easy to sew and easy to wear. At least for me. I have this Vogue pattern for a while and always wanted to try it. So now was the time for it.
I went with size M for a more lose fit so I can get my big belly into it and maybe use them after as well. I ended up doing 3 of this in different lengths starting from view A. After the 1st one I found that the sleeve was very comfortable like this and didn't wanted to try cuffs. The pattern is very simple : just 3 pieces:
To all this I only added neck binding. I find it looks better with it and also had some concerns after reading some previous reviews mentioned issued with a very wide or gaping neckline.
Is not the most very faltering top for my current shape but I feel good in them and I love the colors and prints. I do hope I will be able to use them after I deliver.
The 1st one:
The 2nd one:
The 3rd one:
I will probably sew more of this in a smaller size in the fall.
My tops look quite decent with a skirt as well:
