It was a good sewing weekend...
I made both the jacket (V1127) and the matching dress (TNT pattern) from the gray cotton blend...although both need hand work to be completely finished and wearable. The jacket just needs a button sewn on. The dress needs to be hemmed.
The VOT dress still needs a hem and the covered button added to the collar. I guess I could have finished the Vogue jacket and the VOT dress but when I realized it was just 4pm in the afternoon, I went for it and cut and sewed the matching lined dress.
I know I promised pictures of me in the VOT dress this weekend but faced with the choice to keep sewing or stop and take pictures...well I went with "just keep sewing!" *LOL*
So as soon as I've finished up the hand sewing on both outfits, I will post "fashion shot" pictures and detailed construction information on the jacket. It was an interesting piece to sew and a little different from my norm.
...as always more later!
