Knit Tunics from Vogue 8962

Vogue 8962 is a wardrobe pattern that includes two tops, a pant and a skirt, all designed for knits! Most wardrobe patterns are for woven fabrics, not knits, so I was very excited to buy this when it was first released.
The top has the high low hem that is so popular right now, plus an interesting bias cut back that wraps around to the front to give the top some interesting lines.
The first one that I made was the cowl necked version out of a lightweight rayon knit.  You can see it is really long!  It's kind of hard to see the seamline in the print, but if you look closely, you can see it.

 Here you can see the back view with the separate yoke and the center back seam.

The next version is without the cowl, and is using a solid cream rayon/lycra knit.  I really love how the top drapes when you sit.  You can't see any muffin top, which is quite an accomplishment with a clingy knit.

 Here you can see the back a little better.  The neckline is just turned under and stitched- not a separate facing. It goes together extremely well. 


I  plan to try the skirt and the pants too as soon as I find a nice heavier weight knit to make them with.
I think this is a great style for taller women.  If you are shorter, I think it might be a little overwhelming at it's current length, so you might want to shorten it.  It would be fantastic out of a striped knit to showcase that curved bias back/side front piece as well.  Highly recommend this one!

Happy Sewing!
