Description

Vogue Anne Klein Jacket pattern. Self lined, shawl collar wrap jacket with slit pockets and back side peplum.

The pattern ran SMALL (edited to correct), but I read up on it on patternreview.com before hand so I was prepared and cut a a jacket 2 sizes larger than I would have otherwise. I also make the armhole slightly bigger at the suggestion of a previous pattern reviewer and my pattern maker who happened to walk by while I was cutting this out.

It’s completely self lined, which makes it very warm, but one think I would do differently is change the sleeve lining to a thinner material…. the double layer of wool gets bulky in there.
This was also the project that I learned you should preshrink even your woolen fabrics. Steam press!

    Nice jacket. Can it be worn without a belt?

      Thanks. The pattern actually calls for a purchased belt and there are no button or snap markings on the pattern. I was thinking about adding some but I wanted to wear it and I just happen to have an Anne Klein belt in navy blue so I went with that for now. I may still add them later, but I’m surprised by how much I do like the belt.

    Oh, VERY nice! it kind of resembles a Lanvin favourite of mine from F09, though yours is probably more wearable. I love how the collar-seam lines up with the back-seam! Elegant. Check out the Lanvin if you like: http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/F2009RTW-LANVIN?event=show1922&designer=design_house54&trend=&iphoto=9

      It’s Vogue 2984. You can buy it from their website… I always wait for their sales!
