Sew: Vogue 8815 in black ponti

When I decided I need more basic separates during my wardrobe planning, I remembered that I had a half finished Vogue 8815 top in the unfinished basket. I am determined to finish all those items to clear some room. So I've decided to finish one unfinished item in between every new project. I only had to set the sleeves in and hem this one. I'm so glad I finished it. It's going to get some serious wear. It will be perfect with a patterned pencil skirt, jeans and my new Anita Ponti Pants.

Project Details
Pattern: Vogue 8815, size 18
Fabric: Black lightweight ponti from Tessuti
Alterations: Lowered bust dart by 2.5cm, tapered side seam in an extra 1cm from waist to armhole

Now back to my fuschia Anise jacket!!

    1. Thanks Diana. I think it will fill a gap in my wardrobe quite nicely.

  2. Nice! I'm so addicted to sewing with ponti now - just bought some more this morning to make some winter basics!! Loving your sunnies, too.

  3. Looks great. Now I want to make another one! Isn't ponte such a wonderful fabric.

  4. All the best on finishing your UFOs.
    Your outfit is really cool.
