Vogue 1306---The Canary Rebecca Taylor Top

I've been swamped lately and still haven't blogged about my "Operation: Stock my Summer Wardrobe" plans (it really will be my next post, promise!!!), but I have been sewing. Here's a top that's been cut out for some time that I finally finished up. I really love it! I'm all about the bright colors!!!! Today I went to a birthday party in which all of the attendants were asked to dress "colorful". So I paired this bright yellow top with bright red capris. Sorry for the poor pics, my camerman (The Hubby) wasn't available so I had to use my cell phone. Here's the review.......

Vogue 1306

Time to Sew:
About 3 hours

Sewing Ease (scale 1 easy to 10 difficult):
A 3, not bad at all.

Pattern Description:
Pullover top with neck band, placket, and lower hemline in the front.

(FYI, the bunching in the back of the shirt is due to my protruding capri pockets)

Pattern Sizing:
I cut the size XS

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, for the most part. My front gathers weren't as full as on the pattern envelope but that may be due to the lightweight knit I used. 

Were the instructions easy to follow?

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Loved the overall design!

Fabric Used:
Really thin, bright yellow knit---I believe it was rayon.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. I stabilized the shoulder seams with clear elastic as I always do.
Update 7/14/13---I just realized that I didn't roll up and tack the sleeve. I just left it hanging straight.

What would you do differently next time?:

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, it was an easy sew.

Wardrobe Versatility:
It can go with almost anything---skirt, pants, capris, shorts, etc.

Cute little top!


  1. Very cute! I can't wait to hear about your summer wardrobe plans :)

  2. I have this pattern too! It's nice to see it sewn up before I get to it. I thought it would be a great one, and yours looks wonderful!

  3. What a wonderful top! Such a pretty colour.

  4. Cute top! I made this one earlier this summer and I think you will enjoy how comfortable to wear it is.

  5. So very cute - I love it with the red leggings!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment and for following me on my 10,000 Hour Sewing Challenge:)
