Vogue 8333 - My Baroque-style Jacket8:30 PM
Pattern: Vogue 8333 - Claire Shaeffer's Custom Couture Collection
Pattern Sizing: 6 - 22, I cut the 16.
Fabric: Black-Gold-Silver Brocade (54% Nylon, 30% Poly) from Jo-Anns
Lining: Ivory Charmeuse (100% Silk)
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions are EXCEPTIONAL! Even if you never actually sew this pattern, if you have a desire to learn "luxurious couture construction details" it's worth purchasing. You can apply them to any jacket or coat!
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I made a small FBA and added 2 inches to the length. Yes, it was pretty short (for me)! I also used a combination of both the ready-to-wear instructions and the couture.
As I previously mentioned, I blocked fused with a nylon fusible knit interfacing. I added 3 buttons to the sleeve vent instead of 1. I used uncovered shoulder pads and sleeve heads. I added piping to my lining for a little bit of color.
