An Update on Vogue 8623

As you can probably tell by the lack of posts...I did not sew this weekend!  Shortly after watching the Golden Globes, I started to feel ill...and continued to feel that way until yesterday afternoon.  Because of that, today was my first day back at work.  So there has been very little progress on the Vogue 8623 jacket.

However, I did get the collar basted on...and did one more try-on to make sure that I didn't imagine the fact that this pattern was sewn straight from the envelope without one...yes I said not one adjustment to the pattern and it FITS!

So here is how it looks on the hanger now with the collar basted on:



And here it is auditioning the buttons that Elizabeth, Jack and I purchased from M&J last Saturday!



There is still quite a bit of work left to get it ready to face the world...the lining is in pieces on the table...and just go from there with a finishing list, but I am encouraged and hopefully will be working on the jacket this weekend.

Just want to let the winners of the blogaversary gifts know that your prizes haven't gone out yet...due to illness...but I will try to get them out shortly!  Thanks for sending your addresses to me so quickly!

...more later!

  5. Carolyn.So sorry to hear you've been under the weather!I hope you will be completely better by the weekend so you can sew.
    I'm very interested in this jacket. I love it so far and can't wait to see it on you.
    My daughter has picked this as one of the things she'd like me to make for her but she is only 5'3" and I'm wondering if it might be too boxy for her.

  9. Hope you are back to feeling normal soon. I, too, have been out all week. Doc said I was special 'cause it wasn't the flu; it was pneumonia.

  29. I sewed this one when it first came out...was not happy with it. But I'm thinking now it might be due to my fabric choice as yours is turning out beautifully!
