During the Cruise to Mexico we want to dress for the two formal nights. I enjoy dressing up, so I first thought a tuxedo. But that might be over the top. So I am going to take a gray suit. Joe also has a gray suit.
Even though I have something to wear, I have the urge to make an unlined jacket to wear during the cruise. I might not finish it in time, but that is fine.
I made Vogue 8719 last year. For me, the instructions were vague and the fit was a little tight.
This pattern was printed out on my printer, then assembled.
Pattern assembly line.
This pattern does not have seam-allowances included. I added 1" so room for adjustment would be available. Once cut-out, I made a muslin to check the size. Except for needing to add two inches to the body length and the sleeves, it fits fine.
Thanks for stopping.
