V2956. I wanted a classy and versatile cover-up for my favorite t-shirt/jeans combo. I could never find a knit I liked enough to do any of the cute sweater patterns that were around this season, and I found this Vogue jacket/pants pattern during my Black Friday frenzy. I am a sucker for back details.
I am only in the beginning stages of construction even though I've been working on it every day for a week . The side seams are open, the inner back facing is not attached and the front folded facings are not pressed. I've been afraid to press it all in place because I have a sneaking suspicion I'm going to have to rip out something major and re-do it all. The sleeves are in 2 pieces, I'm anxious to see how they turn out. I would be soooo much further along if the pattern markings would stop disappearing!!! No matter what I use to mark, as soon as I re-focus my eyes, they are gone- blended into the fabric. I'm seriously considering the Sharpie.
I'm not feeling too good about some things...
It is cut on the bias, but it's getting some weird crinklage in the back there. Perhaps I should re-cut it?
I'm not loving the apparent bubbling along the seam connecting the pleats to the upper back.
These are two of the button candidates.
And New Year's is great and all, but I'm looking forward to Valentine's Day :) My next project will be just the thing for it :)
Keep warm ;)
