Vogue 8962 tunic

This pattern had been waiting to be made for far too long. So long, in fact, that is now out of print. I'm so pleased I finally made it though as it's a really nice style.

Vogue 8962

Vogue 8962 is a tunic, skirt and pants pattern. The tunic has an optional cowl neckline, which I made, interesting seam lines and a high-low hem.

Hopefully you can see some of the outfit in the poorly-lit pictures. I am wearing the tunic with my Paprika Patterns Jade skirt and a new pair of Megan Nielsen Virginia leggings from lovely, stretchy, warm ponte from Spotlight.

 Oops, I seem to have lost the skirt! Here it is with some higher boots instead.

This was a very simple pattern to make. I used some lovely wooly knit fabric in grey from Potter Textiles. There wasn't quite enough grey to do the cowl neck, so I used another patterned, knitted remnant from Potter's for the neck and lower sleeves. It coordinates very well with many things.

If you have this pattern I would definitely recommend it. It is flattering and comfortable and I will certainly be making more.

So there.


  1. I love the interesting shape of this tunic. What a shame it is out of print now. Great use of contrasting fabric too. Works equally well with a skirt or leggings.

  2. I love your use of the contrast fabric. The combination looks very chic!

  3. Cute top and the contrast works really well! Lovely!

  4. Love the hem and the contrast cowl and sleeves

  5. Just want to echo Mags comment. That contrast works and the whole outfit is wrapped up in winter cosyness!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I value every single one.
