Vogue 8151


I really like this idea of a lace front sweater, and had pinned this one from Nordstrom to my Pinterest boards. 
Bobeau Lace Front Sweatshirt available at Nordstrom

Vogue 8151 is a very popular Tshirt pattern, and has been positively reviewed many times on PatternReview. I can't tell you how long this pattern has been in my collection, but I think it served the purpose well for my knit top.




I cut out two separate fronts from View B: one of the gray knit, and one of the lace. Then I basted them together around the outside edges, and went forward treating them as one.




Loved the neckline treatment...looks good and lays flat!



Nice to have darts, and some waistline fitting :-)


Michigan weather has been a bit like Fall this week, so I was actually able to wear my new top sooner than I would have thought.



This was a great start to sewing some new pieces for my Fall/Winter wardrobe. I have another idea for sewing with this pattern, but next up will be a ponte knit dress.....in gray! Who knew I had all this gray fabric in my collection?!

  3. The shirt looks great - I think I like your lace better than the original. And I, too, like gray. I started wearing more of it a couple years ago in order to take a break from black as my winter neutral.
