The other week, Vogue patterns were 40% off at Spotlight for VIP members, so mum and I hurried off to have a look!
I intended to buy some of the vintage Vogue patterns but they were all a bit ho-hum. I ended up getting this pattern for a jacket, dress, pants, and skirt. Find it online here!
I got it for the jacket, but I also really like the dress! The pants and skirt are super boring.
I also bought some of the lovely blue tartan fabric you see in the background. My intention is to make a jacket similar to this Vivienne Westwood one! In blue, obviously!
It is pretty similar to the pattern!
This is pinning pattern pieces. I have to be super careful to line up the pattern on the fabric or I'll end up with a weird looking jacket. A lot of thinking was involved in placement of pattern pieces!
It was long.
I'm terrified to start sewing! This will be the most complicated project I've ever started. I have lining, facing, interfacing... gosh! But I'm looking forward to having a rad jacket!
