Another Vogue pattern

As I said this week: the dress is out for the moment. Too complicated to get it the way I like it.

There’s another Vogue pattern that has been in my stash for a few years and have wanted to try for a long time: 1064, an Anne Klein jacket. I’ve checked before and did it again yesterday, but there are NO reviews on this pattern and it even is out of print now. Not popular apparently, but I like the style with all the darts and the waistline shaping it gives.

 

After my disastrous Knip mode jacket in early summer, I made a muslin first. Size 14 was the largest in the envelope I had, a 16 would have been the size to use by bust measurement.

 

  

It is a bit snug in the bust area, I already did a fba (Sandra Betzine method from het book Fast Fit) on the front pattern piece.

The back looks a bit wide, but I must not make it smaller, because I won’t be able to move easily anymore. A little shoulderpad will probably make a difference too.

All in all I’m quite happy with the muslin. Now to decide which fabric to use.

Sigrid, I made this jacket 2 years ago and love it! I plan to do another one I love it so much. The slacks are also great. I hope you enjoy your jacket as much as I did mine! Looking forward to seeing yours! ~Valerie

The darts are a nice accent for your small waist.

That is a lovely jacket - it is surprising there are no reviews. Your first off muslin is pretty good - looks like this one will not be a wadder

Such a nice looking classic, amazing it isn't more popular! The waist darts are so flattering too. I agree that the back looks wide, but you can always take it in more if necessary, unlike having to let it out!

I have always liked this pattern and I am pretty sure I have it in the collection. The muslin looks a bit big around the neck and upper back/chest...but I like my jackets quite fitted. Look forward to seeing it made up.

I think that your muslin is looking excellent - very promising indeed! I really love the style of this jacket - it has sleek elegance and I really like the shape of the neckline.
