Vogue 1098 Anne Klein jacket, with collar made but omitted.
My sewing machine couldn’t handle the thickness of the fabric for buttonholing, so I used large snaps on the inside and buttons on the outside. I had to use buttons (would have preferred the clean lines of no buttons) because attempting buttonholes had made a bit of a mess on the jacket front that needed to be covered.
I love this jacket – it was a breeze to make up compared to the more fitted style of jacket, and it feels so luxurious on! I may even make it again as a summer jacket, but would probably lengthen the upper arms and bodice a little.
There are more pictures and details on my blog if of interest (http://upsewlate.blogspot.com/2011/06/ooh-cashmere-vogue-1098-anne-klein.html)
Wool/cashmere/poly outer, not quite matching lining, large lustrous buttons – all from Tessuti Fabrics in Sydney.
