Vogue 1831 - Designer Inspired Jacket with Back Bow Detail

Vogue 1831 features a jacket inspired by one seen in the Gucci Fall 2020 Ready-to-Wear Collection.( Here's a link to the collection - this jacket is look number 80.)

In my opinion, the best part of the jacket is the back with the inverted pleat and bow!

I sewed the jacket in an embroidered silk suiting from Fabric Mart Fabrics as part of their Fabricista program. (Link to the Fabricista blog here)

This pattern was part of Vogue's 2021 Fall release. I purchased the pattern when it was on sale for $5.99 at the Something Delightful website.

While I may not wear it buttoned most of the time, I will definitely wear it with jeans. The boot cut jeans I'm wearing are purchased. 

These wider leg denim pants are from the pattern. I went down a size (due to stretch denim I used) and narrowed the bottom flare about 6". They're wearable but I'm still not too fond of them.

The jacket is fully lined which always feels so wonderful when worn. I used a rayon lining, also from Fabric Mart Fabrics. 

I did eliminate the front patch pockets as I thought the placement was odd. Even moving them down closer to the hem didn't look right. I used a faux leather remnant I had on hand for the contrast collar. 

If you're interested in more pics and details, I have a review video on both pieces on my YouTube channel. You can view it here

  1. I loved this on you when I saw it on the video. The length of the jacket owns you and really flatters your shape, makes those legs look miles long, sigh,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
