Working on the jacket…




I finally began work on the jacket (Vogue 7975) I plan to make. I have made the muslin and checked it for fit. I’ll be making a size 16 in the jacket and this seems to fit well. I don’t want it to be too loose. I’m making one without buttons, with 3/4 sleeves and patch pockets. So, I’m combining two of the views. The fabric is a linen-like material (washable) I bought from JoAnn’s probably two years ago. The lining is a basic lining material I bought at G Street Fabrics a couple of weeks ago. The only thing I’ve had trouble with is finding the trim I want. I haven’t seen anything like what I had in mind (chenille to coordinate with the pink), so I may just use satin ribbon. I’m not sure yet. In the meantime, I can still start the jacket.

  1. Love your fabric choice! Very nice! Looks like you're on a great start there. You should try and Google "pink chenille trim" and checkout some of the places online. You may find something you really like! Good Luck
