Pattern Review Vogue 8251

Introducing Raewin who has been a long time Tessuti customer and is a very talented sewer - regularly attending classes at Sit'n'Sew to fine tune her skills.

Here she is in a great top made up in Tessuti's 100% Polyester Stretch Knit 'Misti Marle' - it has a Missoni knit look about it and makes up beautifully. Raewin actually wore this top about a month ago - before the heavy rains and sudden cold snap in Sydney!!!

Raewin used Vogue Pattern 8251 - view C

Raewin found it easy to make and enjoyed the challenge of the twisted band at the back. It looks great .... the front tuck detail , flattering neckline and the lovely cap sleeve created from the twisted band are lovely. To see another review on this pattern ( there aren't many ) you can see Erica's post about it here.


  1. Adorable top, I love the fabric! I made this top about a year and a half ago. I may have to revisit this pattern again.

  2. Colette .- the patron of this blouse in precious but must know how to choose a suitable tissue as you have done well this garment has its own life. really fantastic. greetings. Paco

  3. I made this top a while ago too, but I need to go down a size and haven't got to it yet - looks like I really should try. I do remember that I had a nightmare trying to figure out the crossover at the back!

  4. Very cute top! So many inspiring projects and so little time....sigh.
