Me-Made-May 2019: Vogue 8731

Here we go....kicking off Me-May-May 2019 with my tried and true pattern for knit tops: Vogue 8731, which is sadly out of print.

I've made this 5 times now, I think, and one of those times I lengthened it to dress length.
I can sew this pattern straight out of the envelope without any alterations: quick and easy!
The fabric is a nice, beefy knit purchased at an estate sale last year (or was it the year before? time flies!).

I've been trying to get more adept at using my coverstitch machine. A little hard to see in the picture below with all those stripes, but it's getting better. Practice, practice.

Do you use your coverstitch machine often? Any tips?

Happy sewing!


  1. Very nice! You are right about continuing to practice with the coverstitch machine. I have one, and find that running the bottom edge of my hem along the right edge of the presser foot attachment really helps. Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks, Vanessa! and I will give your tip a try with my next coverstitch hem!
