Vogue 8679 - Back Bustle Riding Jacket9:30 PM
Did it look like the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? It does.
Fabric: Tan Silk Tweed (100% silk) from Hancock Fabrics
Lining: Brown crepe back satin (100% poly)
Were the instructions easy to follow? I barely used the instructions. I only referred to them for the bustle/godet construction.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I didn't care for the styling on the pattern envelope, but I knew from the moment I saw it that it was a good knock-off for the McQueen jacket. I discussed in a prior post not understanding why they use a one-piece sleeve on great jacket patterns. So I changed that.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I made a 1" FBA.
I also added an inch to length and I changed the one-piece sleeve to a two-piece with a vent. I fully tailored the jacket also.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will not sew THIS jacket again, but if I find something similar that draws me in, I would do that one! And yes, I do recommend this pattern.
