All Vogue patterns are 75% off at Hancock, so I thought I should take advantage of the sale!

Here's the links:

Vogue 8155: http://store.sewingtoday.com/cgi-bin/voguepatterns/shop.cgi?s.item.V8155=x&TI='8155'&page=1
Vogue 8081: http://store.sewingtoday.com/cgi-bin/voguepatterns/shop.cgi?s.item.V8081=x&TI='8081'&page=1
Vogue 7877: http://store.sewingtoday.com/cgi-bin/voguepatterns/shop.cgi?s.item.V7877=x&TI='7877'&page=1

I'm going on a trip soon, so I thought maybe I could whip up some cute shirts.  I have never done a Vogue before; I've heard they're hard. 

I could make 8081 out of jersey or other strechy fabric too, right?

How long did it take you to make it and what view did you do?

Thanks everyone!

Vogue patterns aren't really that hard to do. The instructions are pretty easy to follow. I haven't made the tops that you've got but I've made simliar ones, if in doubt pin everything first and then sew. I tend to sew half then when it's still on the machine just double check to see it I've done it right. Good luck and show us what it looks like when your finished! (and it's ok if it doesn't look anything like the photo on the pattern!) I've made things that look nothing like the pattern but is still wearable!

Thanks jujus!  My mum's telling me that they are harder than other patterns, but the tops don't look hard at all.

I try to remember to take pics!  I have some others that I still need to take pics of too.  That'll be #8,492 on my to-do list.  Smiley

I haven't made those tops, but I've sewn with Vogue patterns since I was fifteen (ten years).   Next to Burda, I think that they're the best.  All the patterns you chose look super easy too.  Not many pieces, not structured.  I would try 8081 out of jersey too.  Just take the zipper out.  It may take a little adjusting to make things tighter, but it should work.  Fabric suggestions are just that--suggestions.

Thanks everyone for all your help!  I've picked out a green satin and light yellow jersey to work with.  Now if I could onl find time to make them!

I also haven't used those specific patterns, but I have used vogue patterns before and I love them.  I am really excited about JoAnns after Xmas sale where they are 3.99 I'm going to stock up.  I think they are a little harder than some other patterns but they are also a lot easier to follow.  Also there are usually levels written right on the envelope (I think its a colored dot with a level next to it) If it says advanced I'd steer clear.  I made a dress from an advanced pattern once and it took a lot of time.

I was the same as spentonrainydays, I spent like 20 hours on this dress that was advanced, it was for my year 10 textiles project, like years ago, but it is worth the time and the patience (btw i got like 95 on it, sorry but im proud of my mark!) It does take a lot of effort but they aren't hard to follow just very very time consuming~
