Vogue 2923 - Ruffle Collar Jacket

12:00 AM

It was really breezy this evening. Hopefully, Fay will pass us by.

Project Details:

Pattern: Vogue 2923
Fabric: 100% Wool Flannel from Metro Textile
Notion: Hook & eye

Description: Semi-fitted, unlined jacket has princess seams, collar extends into front band, slightly dropped shoulders, pocket, French seams, purchased trim and two-piece sleeve.

This is my first completed item for the Mini-Wardrobe Contest. I've got to get on the ball!

This is my second time making this jacket. I made version one January 2007. Even though I *thought* that I would only make one jacket of this type, I loved the original one so much I had to make it again. Again, I differed from the suggested fabric of gabardine and denim. I wanted this unlined jacket to have a bit of a cardigan feel to it. Even though it is unlined, I wanted it to have a bit of structure, so I underlined it with silk organza.

The instructions suggested french seams. They are edgestitched and topstitched like denim, which created a faux flat-felled finish. This time I left off the pockets. Since I've made this jacket before, I knew for a fact that I would not use them. Also, the darts are topstitched. When I topstitch, I use a 4.0 mm stitch.

I took the waist in a tad bit so the jacket would be fitted instead of "semi-fitted" for a more tailored look. I did have to move the front darts over about half an inch. I also opted to leave off the trim. I used an eye and hook for closure. Also, I love the fact that it has 2-piece sleeves. I think I'll be retiring this pattern... THIS time!

Must give a big ole thanks Monica (CreoleinDC) for picking this fabulous, fabulous fabric at Metro Textiles!

Sidenote: Beading

The necklace I'm wearing, I made especially to match this jacket.

This is becoming addictive!
