Short about my current project

V8161 jacket Vogue patternAt this moment I am working on a jacket (again). I am using the Vogue pattern V8161 (again) model B (again). Originally it is unlined jacked but as I prefer to have lined jackets I have adjusted it accordingly.

Underlining is in place on bodice front and back and sleeves. At this moment still I have to sew in sleeves, collar and make fake pockets. Lining is already cut off and it has to be assembly.

I like this pattern very much I have already done 3 jackets using this pattern. It suite my figure well and it is easy to combine with a dress or a skirt. Herewith all of them.

As there are no pockets and I always carry a phone or a lipstick or a tissue so I had to think about other solution.

And here it is – I am making pockets in a lining inside on both sites. You can easy carry a mobile in it and it is not visible. I found it very handy.
