Vogue 8934, perfect after all!

View B
In my last post, I listed two errors in view B of this pattern. I stand corrected. Now that I (maybe) understand the construction of the placket, all the pieces fit together. Thanks to Dixie of With Needle and Brush for gently helping me understand.

It is a clever hidden placket, in fact. I may have to make this a third time just to try that cool hidden placket.

You can see in the pattern instructions (picture at left) that the outside vertical band goes all the way up to the neck edge, whereas the inside vertical band (really the fly for the placket) stops at the collar's lower edge.

So, the outside collar piece has to be shorter than the inside collar piece, Now I get it. You probably got it a long time ago, if you have worked with this pattern.

And...the error I mentioned in the lining for the front of B...totally operator error. Oh, my.

So, so sorry for documenting errors that are not there!

Bottom line - this is a GREAT pattern. Now go buy it, if you haven't already.


  1. Hey, just consider it a little "brain blip." I have them when reading directions more that I like to admit. Thanks for clearing it all up for us!

  2. I've cursed patterns only to find out it was me. You are not alone :)

  3. I think absolutely you should make another version! I would love to see what you would do with this pattern next--you always add such wonderful creative details to your garments.
