One thing I love about sewing, other than seeing something you like and making it, is when other people who sew make a pattern that you have never ever seen before lol
When Mimi G made this Vogue jacket, I was floored because I had N E V E R seen it lol. I'm always ALL over new pattern releases and for the MOST part, I look at all of them,even if I don't like them or buy them I ALWAYS see them. Or so I thought.
I went and picked up this pattern and some fabric with the quickness lol
Before we continue, someone tell me why I don't have ANY silver/grey flats!? I did NOT want to wear pumps but the flats I had didn't look right. I do NOT walk in heels everyday. Normally I'm just in and out of the car so yes, most of the time I do wear them. If I'm going to be doing a LOT of walking? Like the mall or grocery shopping or ANYTHING like that? Ya girl is in FLATS lol.
I'll probably say this EVERYTIME I make something this color so just get ready lol.
The patone color of the year is radiant orchid. I love ANY shade of this color lol.
I used sweatshirt fabric that I actually found at Hancock. I was SHOCKED to even see it in there, especially in this color. I grabbed some real quick. Can't tell you the last time I purchased fabric from there lol.
For those of you who sew, here is a review:
Pattern Sizing: XS-M I made the Medium
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? See what had happened was...I've gotten to where I really don't read instructions. I will glance over them for the review but unless it's something super hard I dont' follow them. Soooo that backfired this time lol. MAKE SURE YOU PAY ATTENTION TO THE INSTRUCTIONS SO YOU DON"T SEW UP THE DART WHERE THE POCKET SHOULD GO. I don't have pockets on my jacket and I was too lazy to go back and take it apart lol.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the style of this pattern.
Fabric Used: Sweatshirt fabric
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Sewed up the pockets by mistake lol.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I won't make this one again, but I do recommend it if you like this style jacket.
Conclusion: Great jacket went together without any problems other than the mistake I made.
