Advance 8190 first steps

After Studio Faro has solved the puzzle of this vintage pattern Advance 8190 I decided to give it a try.

I have dug out this light pink jersey and after making sure there is enough fabric to make a wearable test model I fist started to make a pattern.

As I mentioned I decided to adjust the pattern (sleeves) as suggested by the Studio Faro.

(Above pictures are taken from the Studio Faro blog – btw … above line – neckline / front wrap – the total length is 73 cm divided into 25 cm and 48 cm – not 45 cm. Unless it is meant to have in the middle 25 cm and 28 cm in the centre front.)

It looks like I will make the sleeves even more narrower…

Making of the pattern went fast – it was not a rocket science Glimlach

So now all two pattern pieces are cut off waiting to be processed further. What looks like neck line – it is actually waist with waistband… just to make it even more confused Glimlach.

I am going to follow the instruction prepared by Studio Faro. It is actually exactly as easy as it is written on the pattern envelope – 3 easy steps … PIN … CUT … SEW Glimlach. It as well remind me a top which long, long – very long – ago my mother made for me – only without sleeves.
I will try to finish this top tomorrow.

In my Inspiration map I have found out more similar wrap tops – which I adore!

    I am assuming from the picture it can be worn either way? It is very nice top- Can’t wait to see it finished up in all of it’s glory! ~Laurie

    • Correct … this pattern has attracted my attention many years ago and I was looking for the pattern since. Now I have it and the top is almost ready 🙂

      Hi sewexhausted. I tried wearing it the other way – that is with the high drape at the front and it almost choked me! So I only would consider wearing with the wrap at the front. Let me know how you go with your top. Thx 😉 studiofaro

  2. Oh this is intriguing isn’t it? The pattern shape – I’m not surprised that you have been wanting to figure it out.
