Easy week-end project and finishing Vogue 1023

I have started weekend with making a new cover for my dress forms.
It was not a rocket science – so good project to warm up.

I have taken out the old cover made of a knitted lycra-like fabric and traces the shape on a paper.

I had in my stash a piece of a knitted cotton bland which was just enough for the cover. I decided to make the new cover a little longer. It was very simple project. The next cover will be made from canvas – good exercise in patternmaking.

After the cover was done I started to finishing vintage Vogue Jacket V1023.
It is taking much longer then I expected.

What left now it to hand stitch the lining to the fashion fabric. I should manage to do this today evening. I should not forget to open and finish the button holes on the WS.

While hand stitching I am watching Patternmaking Basics: The Bodice Sloper bu Suzy Furrer on On Craftsy platform

    1. I tried it yestarday on …. but still I have to finish few things first before I can wear it.
      These classes are great. I love construction and I enjoy it. The only obstacle for me is imperial system. I have to transffer everything to metrics firsts.

    1. After being almost half way with bodice I am thinking of buying the skirt as well… I was studying patterdrafting, I have lot of books on patternmaking…. but I like the way Suzy is explaining the topic.

  1. I cannot thank you enough for sharing all the construction photos of this coat. I’ve made several coats over the years, but every time I start a new one, I get hung up on the method of inner construction that I want to use for that particular project. Your photos are very clear, and are a great teaching tool. Thank you!
