Vogue 8497

I have made view C of this Marcy Tilton Wearable Art pattern for three stretchy tops. View C has a V neck. The fabric is Liberty's Miall, a cotton jersey bought on the net as a remnant. My finished top looks a bit different from the envelope photo, with the neck sitting up like an Elizabethan ruff instead of lying flat, probably because the fabric is stiff for a knit (cotton with spandex). It has softened a little after washing. View C is an interesting and appealing pattern when you want an unusual top that isn't weird or complex. I think it looks much nicer in a print than in the envelope illustration where it appears in a murky dark colour.
