Vogue 7610 Jacket

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments on my Tessuti Dress Entry. The finalists have been announced, and alas, I am not one of them ..... there's always next year!

So, onto Vogue 7610 ... I made this some time back, just trying to catch up on a few things now..... this is great pattern and I've worn these jackets heaps!  First a denim one, lots of top stitching and jeans buttons etc, and the 2nd one I did in baby grey cord with a fake fur trim - all fabrics from Rosemary at Chic Fabrique.  For the 2nd one I shaved a little off the head of the sleeve I could probably go down a size overall now that I think about it. I cut a Size C. For the 2nd one, I also changed the shape of the back yoke and the shape of the pockets.  These jacket styles are a great addition to your wardrobe, the pattern was fine, though I am curious to try Style Arc's jeans jacket to compare .... but then again that would probably never fit on my "list" for quite some time ...... know what I mean?

Ciao for now!


  1. Have always admired the finish on your work - amazing

  2. Love the addition of the fur trim - though it will be getting a touch too warm for it soon...

  3. Hi Judith, hmmm, Friday 2 weeks ago ... 34 degrees, yesterday 20 degrees - you just never never know!!!!

    1. I know!!!! Anyone would think we had moved to Melbourne...ha, ha....

  4. The fur trim looks so cool and zippy! I love classics with a twist!

  5. Great jackets and like the fur addition, very cute.

  6. Didn't notice the fur trim until I saw the comments above. What fantastic jackets and the fur - inspired!
