Vogue 8232 - Jacket

I made this jacket to wear with McCall's 5466, but didn't finish it until June. Here's my review:

Pattern Description: MISSES’/MISSES’ PETITE JACKET AND DRESS: Unlined, below waist jacket has open front, neckline gathered into neck band, and above elbow length sleeve. Sleeveless, below mid-knee dress has princess seam bodice and flared skirt.

Pattern Sizing: size 6 to 20. I made size 12. (jacket)

The jacket did look like the pattern. I only made a small change, adding an inch to the width of the front and back.

I agree with the very easy rating given by Vogue. There were no confusing steps in the instructions and the methods were easy to follow. I wanted a no fuss jacket to complete the outfit and this one fit the bill.

The fabric used: polyester satin purchased from Vogue Fabrics (remnant room). The entire outfit cost less than $35.00, which a plus for me.

I can't say that I will sew it again for myself, but may sew it for my DD. I like this pattern and plan to make the dress as well. A beginner would have no problem sewing this up.
