This time I make my French jacket based on the new Claire Shaeffer’s Vogue pattern -V8991 (Misses’/Misses’ Petite Jacket).
Few days ago I have traced the pattern and made muslin.
Being busy with the Vogue V2888 dress I have just in between tested the muslin.
I will make only small adjustments – my swayed back adjustment and of course I will shorten the sleeves. Then check again.
I was planning to make it from tweed in plaid …
though what they don’t show clearly is that front of the jacket has a center-front panel that curves into the neckline, which may make matching plaids difficult. (If this is your first time at the Chanel jacket rodeo, take my advice and don’t pick a plaid. This post explains why: Chanel Jacket #2: Blood, Sweat and Tears.)
So to make it easer (why not) I decided to use different fabric – I have enough in my stash.
During this weekend I am wearing only top for MMMay’14.
