Vogue 1023 time to work on sleeves

The bound buttonholes are ready, the singlewelt pockets are installed – it is time to set in the sleeves in my new vintage Vogue Jacket V1023.

This jacket has kimono sleeves with underarm inserts. To make sewing in the sleeve inserts easier it is advised to sew patches to the underarm seams.

I have machine stitched following the seam line on the corner.

Then I cut through all layers to the point.
The extensions from the patches make sure you will have a grip when attaching the inserts.

Before you sew the inserts you have to first sew the side seams joining front and back.

First I have pinned the inserts matching all notches and then based it in place. You may see on the below picture how helpful the patches are. It would be very difficult to catch this small edge of a fashion fabric.

After careful stitching both sleeves I could join the upper seams – arm and sleeves.

The jacket start to take a shape. Next on the list: a collar and cuffs.

    1. True – on the drawings it looks wider, however meantime Vogue put pictures of ready made jacket so I knew it is more fitted. I was as well reading reviews on PatterReview.
      I like it as it is – I only make slveeves longer.
      I was thinking of making the jacket longer and make coat out of it.
      I thnik you can easy change it to an A-line shape coat/jacket.

  1. It’s looking good! I made a wiggle dress with underarm inserts last January – I was glad that I took the time to practice with a muslin before I did the real thing!

  2. Podziwiam i chylę czoła 🙂 perfekcja 200% Kolor i krój kurteczki bardzo mnie się podobają , już nie mogę doczekać się finału!
    Ja ostatnio szyję płaszcz ale nie wiem kiedy go ukończę , jak będę szyła w takim tempie jak teraz to będzie gotowy na następną zimę 😦

  3. I like the cut-in sleeves with the insert. I made a similar style jacket, but the insert was square at the top and not pointed, so it was very difficult to attach. I like this design better.
