All's well that ends well

 

 

Vogue 1063 in my second version. As I told you, my jacket of 100 errors. But the endresult is quite good, so I'm very happy with this. I made bound buttonholes showing the other side of the fabric. This fabric has two " right"  sides, so I thought it was nice to make the buttonholes like this.

I comtemplated doing the upper collar like that too, but decided against it. I have enough of the fabric left to make a skirt, so perhaps I'll use the black/red irregular stripes side for that.

In a post of September I told you about the differences between the sleeve drawing of Vogue 1063 and 1064. For this jacket I changed the sleeve and made the pattern like the 1064  sleeve. I did change the pattern further by adding a hem allowance of 5 cm (2 inches), and make my own lining pattern. Pfff, I'll think about that a second time when doing that for a pattern that has seam allowances included.  I'm more used to working with patterns without seam allowances, and because of that I made a mistake there too.

To the sleeve I added sleeve heads in the way described by Els of the sewing diva's. I interfaced the front and back of the jacket as I did with my summer jacket.

I'm finished with this pattern. It's a nice result, but two is quite enough. Can I make anyone in Europe happy with this pattern (size 14-20)? (Apologies to the US ladies, but I think you can get your vogue patterns a lot cheaper than in Europe, so I'll limit it to European readers this time.)
