As a reminder, the pattern is Vogue 2463, published in 1990.
I made view C, with the square neckline and short sleeve.
I did remove 1/2 inch from the shoulder seam to omit the shoulder pad. I already have fairly broad shoulders, so a pad becomes a bit ridiculous on me. Otherwise, I cut a straight size 12 with no alterations. Not because I didn't need any, just because I was lazy and this was supposed to be a quick project. Fit-wise, it is a little big in the neck and shoulder area, although moving over the top button took care of the neckline gaposis I had. I could use a smidge more ease in the bust, so if I make it again, I'll do a small y-dart FBA. Maybe an inch or so.
How nice is that neckline, though? I love a square neck. Such a wonderful frame for a great necklace. Pretty and sexy without being trashy. Love it.
Inside, I serged the seams, and the neckline is faced. I drafted my own facings for two reasons. One, Mom had already cut the pattern to a different size, so I had to guess a bit at the neckline. Second, the facings as provided were really skimpy and I hate when facings flip out, so I made mine significantly deeper. You'll note the interesting taupe serging. Yes, I was afraid to change the thread on the Babylock. I know, I'm a big chicken.
I am so happy with my top! I don't really have any tops that tuck well and that I can also nurse in. I love the 80s/40s vibe this one has and it was so easy to sew. If you run across this pattern, and it isn't too dear, give it a go! You'll be happy you did!
