Vogue 9212 Jacket Pattern Review Pt. 2

Front

This is the finished jacket. As I cut out the individual pieces, I machine embroidered the designs. Kind of says gypsy carnival barker to me, but I like it. My husband said I should make one for him  and we can recreate Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. I think not.

The tricky parts were:

-the 90 ° turn at the collar

-I did a floating hem and it was time consuming and took some finagling with the back because of the way that part falls

Back

-the front hem also was a bit of a struggle to get it to hang right and not stick out at right angles from my hips-not an attractive look. I would suggest, if at all possible, to have someone pin the hem while you are wearing it.

I have done many crafts over the years. The very first, when I was a wee girl was sewing and that obsession has returned with gusto. I tend to dive into the deep water and work in one area intensively for months. My most current obsession is quilting.
