March came late…Inside Out Challenge

I know, I know, I made the April challenge in March and now the March challenge in April, I am at sixes and sevens…sorry!!!

This is Vogue Jacket number two (first made a few years ago as a novice sewer) and I love it! jacket shell resized

The fabric is bright orange corduroy and the lining is hot pink acetate, WOW!

The lining is not bagged (you can read more about the problems I had on my blog and instead is fixed to the shell at strategic points with embroidery flowers and french knots.

Very happy with this make and hope to get plenty of wear this coming winter 🙂

    • Hi Carmen, it is not difficult because of the raglan sleeves 🙂 I lengthened it by 2cm, widened it by 4cm (when I bought it a few years ago I bought it based on my RTW size and neglected to look at the pattern measurements- the stuff you learn along the way!), then I had to extend the collar length to compensate. Any problems I had were of my own making!
