Vogue 1214

Vogue 1214 is a close fitting lined top with a shawl collar, snaps in the front, side front pockets and back detailed seams with godets.  Handmade belt as well with a covered buckle.

I made this awhile ago out of some wool fabric in my stash.  There are quite a few styling seams in the back along with the godets. Sometimes I feel like a duck wagging my tail in this top, because of the godets but it's all fun.

Side View
If I were to sew this again, I would lower the waist about one inch.  It seems to be just a little high in this side view pic. 

Happy Sewing!


  1. Great job! I, too, am making this vest. I love the look and I am using a similar fabric as the envelope model, too.

  2. Sensational looking top! You achieved a fantastic fit.
