One item that I began last November and finished just over a month later was this lined jacket from a reissued 1950 design - Vintage Vogue pattern number 2934. It is actually a simple pattern to sew. With so many other commitments that required my time during the last few months of 2006 this jacket took much longer than it should have.
The pattern is rated "average" and the description reads "lined jacket, slightly below waist, has straight front and flared back, funnel neckline and three-quarter dolman sleeves with deep cuffs. "
The black wool, the canvas hair interfacing, the lilac satin lining and the black frog closures were all from my stash so I was able to try this pattern out before investing in a great fabric for my final version. I didn't want to invest in an expensive fabric only to find that the style was completely unsuitable for me.
The front of the jacket.This was a fun project to work on even with all of the hand sewing required.
While the fabric I choose to make my first version from is a bit "blah" compared to the FABULOUS one reviewed on PR emr (click here but sure to come back!) I still like it! Pin It
