deer & doe - la veste pavot

Added Oct 7, 2012

Louisville, Kent...






I am not fluent in French, but I decided to go for it and make one of the new Deer & Doe patterns. La Veste Pavot (the poppy jacket) seemed simple enough in construction, and I was right! It’s a cute trench-style jacket with a peter pan collar, large buttons, and a defining waist band. I made a couple changes, like shortening it a bit, omitting the gathered sleeve cap, straightening the flare a tiny bit, and interfacing the collar.

More details on my blog . Thanks for reading!

Material Notes

Medium-weight stretch woven suiting of some kind… Covered button kit in size 7/8"

    Great job and a bit of a relief to hear your report on the pattern – I just ordered the blouse there during the week :) As the others said, I love your fabric choice, it’s perfect.
