I had every intention of finishing both the jacket AND the dress from Kat’s Sew Weekly Reunion patterns and notions swap. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending upon your point of view!) the weather has been wonderful so I spend all my spare time outside instead of sewing. The dress is already cut out so will definitely be finished in time to rock the Frocktoberfest challenge!
My September garment for the vintage pattern challenge is the knitted jacket from mail order pattern 9387. I love it already and can’t wait for colder weather so I can wear it! I followed the pattern pretty closely and only made two modifications by shortening the length and tapering the sleeves to make a cuff. I also found some cool square buttons to add a bit of visual interest. There is something about impending fall weather that makes me want to snuggle up with knitting and this pattern had enough variety to keep from getting too bored. This weekend though will be devoted to working on my Frocktober dress!
