Sewing – Fall Jacket by Vogue – the lining is quite nice

Vogue Jacket - embroidered edge on hood

Sewing Student Amy Benjamin has been taking classes with Needle Arts Guild and has been working on this Vogue Jacket.  I will be offering this Vogue pattern as a Fall class.  She is almost finished – we just have to put the button holes and button on and do the hem.  By adding some decorative trim along the sleeve cuffs and hood and adding a lining (not called for in the pattern)  it has been a good learning project.  There were some bumps along the way, but the overall project has turned out very nicely.  The lined jacket has a rich quality and the fine, fine fabrics that Amy chose make this a beauty.  I love the deep hood, the silky soft lining and the cashmere like feel of the camel colored wool.  Here are a few pictures of the nearly complete jacket…
