Vintage Vogue V1023 – checked!

I have finished the Vogue Jacket V1023 before I went to my mother and I was planning to wear it. However while putting in on Wednesday early morning I have noticed something was wrong. Well, I tuned the lining in one of the sleeves – a little. Oooops!

First thing I have done the next day being back home – I have fixed the sleeve and now I am ready for warmer weather.

Except making the sleeves 3 cm longer the rest of the pattern is unchanged.
I will take pictures wearing it but first short presentation on my dress form.

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.

Vogue Jacket V1023

I set aside the Marfy 3177 coat to thing about it and started to work on a jacket based on the Vogue vintage pattern V1023 (OOP).

I have a dark blue boiled wool in my fabric stash which I have bought few years ago to make this jacket.

First however I have checked the PatternReview as I remembered there were some issues with this pattern.

Fortunately all reviews were positive the only repeating remark was too short sleeves and the jackets.

I always trace the patterns to a paper tissue so I can always have an original pattern in case I want to make other size. I have noticed that I was missing some marking so first I have checked the traced pattern pieces.  Hmmmm, I did not like what have found out. There were quite differences between the original and the traced pattern pieces.

Lesson learned – if you trance pattern – check it first with original before cutting a fabric.

After this correction was done I have checked the sleeves – yes – they were too short. I have length the sleeves about 8 cm. I hope it will not destroy the proportions of this model.

You can see on this picture from VoguePatterns that the sleeves are a little short.

I then started to think of making the jacket a little longer… but in the end I decided to leave it as it is now – back length 66 cm. It will be great to wear with skirts and comfortable when sitting in the car.

So now… let’s cut the underlining first.

Vintage wrap top Advance 8190 first fitting session

I was very curious how it will fit – and reading all comments under the previous post – not only me Glimlach

As I wrote previously I needed to make the sleeves narrower. I pinned 4 cm at the wrist and then I make 3 cm round the sleeves.

The wrap top looks much better but I still have too much fabric around the neck and shoulders – and it is a little too long. When you look at the picture on the envelope you can see that there is much less fabric – it is more fitted. I am curious how this top looked in real fabric then.
