By Hand London

I began the pattern fitting process for By Hand London-Victoria Blazer.  I am using a pink and black silk fabric that I have had in my stash for a number of years.  You can see it in the photo below.  This is from 2010.

The pattern has a large amount of ease as noted on the finished bust/waist and hip measurements.  I cut a size 12 that may prove to be larger width wise than I want.  Several reviewers indicated that the pattern runs large.

I will be using a black lining that also has been in my stash for sometime.

More updates later.

    1. Thanks, Coco. I wear a lot of black and thought that this will give a pop of color.

  2. Egads! I think some of those fabrics reside in my sewing collection! Good luck with the new jacket.

    1. I know that you and I have bought the same fabrics from time to time. There is a very good chance that these as well as some others are in both of our collections.
