Vogue 1179 Remix

In case you didn't know, I love animal prints. A couple of week ago a picked up a lightweight sweater knit in JoAnns and immediately knew what I would do with it. I started with Vogue 1179.

I shortened it, made it more of an A-line and added the sleeves from Butterick 5554.


This is what I came up with.

I've paired with store bought black jeggings and over-the-knee boots. Of course you can't see the detail because of the fabric but the fabric is the star afte rall. The husband says it looks like a maternity top but who died and left him "chief of the freakin' fashion police?" It came out just as I intended. I love the super long sleeves and added an opening to insert my thumbs to kick it's style up another notch. Can you say SUPER COMFY. Love it, love it, love it.


  1. I just laughed out loud, literally, when I read the 'chief of the freakin' fashion police' line. Cracked me up! I like top, no matter what Mr. Chief says..

  2. That sounds like something DH would say. He doesn't think that animal prints should come in colors. Says something about his taste level. LOL. I like your top and the outfit. you look good.

  3. This is soooooo cute and doesn't look maternity at all! Love this!

  4. There is absolutely nothing like loving what you make. It makes it a garment that you are sure to wear a lot. Love the print and shape of the tunic.

  5. You looks fabulous, but then, you always do :) I need to see if the Joann's here has anymore of that fabric!

  6. Really cute! I love it, great re-mix!
