Description

This is another Tracy Reese for Vogue pattern. I still need to get it pressed. I wish I had used a different fabric for this, the wool stretched a bit and was kind of difficult to work with. I want to make it again with lighterweight fabric. Maybe a hammered silk or silk pique…

Material Notes

wool lined with silk

    I love the orange and blue combo. Do you see the orange lining when you wear it?

      Not too much, really only at the sleeves. I wish you could see it more – the pattern does not call for lining the sleeves but I lined them so that you could see the contrast at least a little.
