I fell in like with Vogue 8799 when new spring patterns were introduced. As any good Club BMV member would do, I waited for a sale and purchased this pattern. I have not made a jacket since the faux sherpa jacket this past winter. Thus making this jacket will be a new adventure. I also plan to make the dress as well; this too will be an interesting journey as well
After arriving home this evening and having some free time, I visited the sewing room to look at knit fabrics and patterns thinking I would make one more top for the Starting at the Top sew along. I just was not feeling the love for any of my knit fabrics that I have in the sewing room.
Gorgeous Fabrics. This will be the jacket.
Sawyer Brook and the orange is close match to the jacket fabric. This is a woven cotton with a raised pattern. This will be the dress.
The back of the pattern envelope states this is an unlined jacket nor does it reference that the dress, top, pants or skirt are lined. However the pattern pieces clearly states how many pieces to cut of fabric and lining. This was unexpected so I will be going through my lining fabric to see if I have the appropriate lining or do I need to purchase tomorrow.
I have cut around the pattern pieces, but have not begun the pattern fitting and measuring yet. I have worked up an appetite so decided it was time to fix a small dinner for me. More updates later.
