Vogue 1064 – finished at last

It took me ages to finish the jacket. This was not because of the pattern, it isn’t that difficult. You know how it goes: other priorities, the weather was very good for a few weeks with summer temperatures here, not the weather to sew a winter jacket and more of such things. It also made/makes me reading only very few blog posts of other bloggers, rarely commenting too. I apologize for that, I love to read on sewing and get inspiration from all of you who blog.It’s just the way it is right now.

This is the result on me:

I’ve sewn a black pair of trousers (very much needed) as well, but they still needed a final press. Today a family member was available to make pictures during daylight, so you see it with my old jeans and I didn’t bother for the black trousers to be pressed first ;).

Back and side view. I might add a chain to the hem as in a Chanel jacket. This fabric might need it, especially in the back. I took out some space from center back. After doing the muslin I added a fba and did not make a new muslin. Then when the body was made it was too wide in the back. It already showed a little in the muslin, but after adding to the front it was too much.

 

The very bright fuchsia lining:

      

Sleeve detail. In this picture you can see the fabric and its colors best.

Mostly I followed the instructions, only added hair canvas interfacing on part of the front and a back stay of silk organza, which I’ve done in previous jackets. It is a really nice pattern and I would like to make it in a plain fabric sometime, which will show the darts better.

The review on Pattern Review is here.

  1. The colors of the fabric are gorgeous. Very nice jacket. I like it worn with jeans but I think it will be fantastic with black pants.

  2. Gorgeous. I really love the colors on you and the fit is lovely. Maybe it is a tad to wide in the back, but honestly if you hadn't said anything I wouldn't have noticed. It's really nice design as well. I bet you'll wear it a lot.

  3. You look sooo lovely, Sigrid. The jacket is beautiful and fits perfectly. I like it with the jeans. :) (My life is such that I don't think I'd have a reason to wear s suit, so it's nice to see it styled more casually.)

  4. It turned out really well! It's lovely. And I even like it with your jeans:-)
    I had a tweed jacket that took forever to finish too, for all the same reasons.

  29. Lovely jacket, both the colors and the fit. I love multicolored tweed jackets because they can be worn with so many other garments. I was surprised this fabric worked so well with all the vertical darts and didn't create bulk. I have this pattern in my collection and I am so impressed with the fit of your jacket, I want to find it and make it in some winter wools.
