Vogue 8605 ( MY Version) for my Sister
I made this orange jacket using a modified version of Vogue 8605 in May.
When my sister saw it , she really liked it and I got her to try it on so I could surprise her with one for her birthday which was Sunday.
Here is my sister's jacket
The fabric is a suit weight linen trimmed with a coordinating striped linen in a lighter weight.
I made this jacket almost exactly like my orange one. Only the buttonholes are different in shape and made from the striped linen.The buttons were a Used Clothing Store find.
For the inside finishes , I used both flat-felled seams,
and a Hong Kong finish.
The bias bands at the hem and the bottom of the sleeves also added extra length to both.
To see more details on how I made this jacket you can refer to the link to my orange jacket in the first line of this post.
Here is my sister wearing her new jacket. I think she was really surprised and I know she loved it.
This jacket was a joy to make! I love working with linen!
