Smitten and have bitten!



I  stumbled upon this top on the internet and have fallen in love. This jacket would be perfect for my work but obviously not out of the  metallic linen shown here. I would like that, though, as well! And as my luck would have it, it's an OOP (out of print) with a big price tag through Etsy shops. Then I found it on Amazon, did the Prime click, and it will be here by Tuesday! I am not sure about fabric yet. I may do a trial run with some linen or chambray and then on to a wool or such. I have always loved swing jackets and the cut of theses sleeves is spectacular. So more Vogue Designer fun coming! Check out the yoke lines and the curve of the sleeve hems, beautiful.


More to come!........Bunny

  3. Funny how it looks like you already although the sleeves might need taming and tapering a bit. How delicious to begin a project and select fabrics and notions and seam finishes...I'm excited for you, Bunny!

  6. This pattern has been in my stash for awhile. I had a teal tapestry fabric in mind for it, but it hasn't been cut yet.
    Now, with your bringing it to mind, I'm seeing a Tilton Sisters vibe to it - and I like it! I think the collar is the only thing that perhaps dates it. Could be the pictured fabric choices, too.
    Hmmm, have to pull it forward in the que!
    Thanks!

    1. All the reviews say that but I like the collar. Maybe that dates me???? Thanks for reminding me to maybe use a home dec fabric. I will do some on line sleuthing tonight.

  7. I have this pattern - I'm short and didn't think I could wear the jacket. I thought it might over power me. I'll be anxious to see what you do with this. Now I need to dig it out as soon as I get back home

  8. I made this jacket as a show sample to feature machine embroidery schiffli lace for John Deer's Adorable Ideas! it is a wonderful pattern. I used an ecru sheer silk with a touch of lycra. all seams were flat fell and top stitched with a silk finish thread. Unfortunately, I cannot find the pictures!

    1. Sounds gorgeous, Heather. One of the ways I pictured this pattern was in a sheer organdy with heavy lace for the yokes and sleeve bottoms. It's like the SB pattern I am working on. It could look good as a jacket or even as a blouse with the right fabric.
