I'll post modeled shots of the jacket when I have time at home during daylight hours. But this is it. Vogue 2770, OOP, a Tamotsu designer separates pattern.
Sweet and simple and striped in multi colours. Light and soft and warm.
Making up a pattern that I had already adjusted for fit was a treat.
I kept the construction fairly simple and the jacket has minimal structure.
|Fusible underlining; serged SAs|
All seam allowances were serged to control the tendency of the fabric to fray.
The sleeve caps were eased with a bias strip of wool which also serves as a light sleeve head. I inserted shoulder pads.
The buttonhole was made with my vintage Singer buttonholer (perfect every time).
All this goodness, including wool, lining, interfacing, thread and button, came from The Sewing Lawyer's imperceptibly diminishing stash.
I have enough of the fabric left to use it as an accent on another piece (a yoke for a skirt?). Maybe I should check stash for coordinating fabric or leather... Who knows what's in there?
