I made this suit jacket using vogue pattern V1169 by Rebecca Taylor. I wanted to set my self a challenge, and tackle some new techniques. I had lots of fun with the piping, the peplum and the welt pockets, and I’m glad to add them to my repertoire.
The jacket is fully interfaced and lined, and I used some cheeky green lining as a nice surprise contrast on the inside. It’s so nice when something looks neat and finished on the inside and out.
Even though there are a billion pieces to cut out for this pattern, I quite enjoyed putting it together.
