Description

This jacket, made from a textured navy lightweight denim, is made from 23 pattern pieces and is fully lined. It was probably the most challenging piece I made in high school, as it was a more advanced Vogue pattern. The fit, though, was totally worth all the extra pieces and top stitching! For once, my pattern was pre-trend, as the metal off-center zipper trend was not seen for a few years after I completed this. And there are sweet metal zippers going up the the back the of sleeve, from wrist to elbow.

    I have this pattern and I’m looking forward to starting it! Yours looks fabulous. I like it in denim! Question: Would you say the pattern is true to the bust size? Or should I pay more attention to the waist measurement were it is most fitted?

      Oh goodness, I made this pattern so long ago that I’m not sure I could give you a good answer. I do not remember resizing anything, even though I am a vogue 8 on top and 12 through the hips and usually have to swing things out. I do think I lengthened it though, probably about 2 inches through the waist, which is usually what I do for all Vogue patterns. I would say that the waist is more important, especially if your bust is small like mine. I would rather have a fitted waist and slightly roomy bust than not be able to zipper it up!

      Thanks for that nugget of information… I think that helps. I don’t have a ton of experience with Vogue patterns, so it’s always scary deciding which size to cut out. I’m tall though (5’10") so I might follow your lead and lengthen it.
