OOP Vogue 8623 which has been sitting in my sewing room at various stages for years. I'm not quite sure why, because I really like this pattern and I love the fabric.
I love the collar in this jacket and I love the pleat at the back. I even lined the jacket which is something I avoid constantly. Even that turned out to be quite simple.
As far as sewing the jacket I had no problems at all. The collar went on well and the whole jacket came together really well, in fact it was quite easy.
The fabric is a textured thick cotton, I'm not sure what the name of it is, but it is quite stiff, which I think suits the style of the jacket.
The only part of the construction I haven't done is the buttonholes. My sewing machine is not sewing buttonholes well and I didn't want to wreck the front, so I will leave that till I have the machine serviced.
Overall I am very happy with this addition to my wardrobe.
