About eight tears ago I made this jacket twice for myself and twice for my DD.
The pattern is OOP Vogue pattern 2679.
I loved the black stretch denim version I made first and I thought I'd make a new version. Not a good idea!
This pattern has had it's day and I'm not in love with my new jacket although it's fine. I didn't make pants but bought a pair of jeans instead to save time..
The fabric is a medium weight striped stretch cotton denim that I bought at C&M Textiles in Ottawa.
I top stitched using two spools of grey polyester thread .
The closures are heavy black snaps which I hate applying!!
I like the the cuffs. They can also be worn folded back.
I used a Hong Kong finish to give a clean finish to the inside of the jacket.
Please ignore the silly expression on my face in this photo!
I've worn this a few times and haven't gotten a single comment so I guess I'm not the only one who thinks it's mediocre! Lol!
I hope you had time to sew this weekend. Have a great week!
