This afternoon when I came home from work I decided to work on some of the things I cut out last weekend. This jacket is from Vogue 1020. I never thought I would make this jacket, but another serendipitous moment brought the fabric and pattern together. Originally I had purchased this cotton knit for a wrap dress, but it has a crisper hand than I had realised. The Vogue pattern just happened to be there as I unpacked the box and I knew it would work for this fabric. I'm not sure I will wear it tied up, but as an alternative to a cardigan it is perfect to slip on over a dress or top at this time of year. It's fairly fitted across the shoulders and because it is crisp, it wears more like a jacket than a knit top, so it is great for work. I can see this becoming a staple this autumn. I may even slip this into my SWAP instead of the red coat I had planned.
Next up I have to finish pants for Grant's SWAP. All I have to do for him is make two more pairs of pants and a jacket (which I still haven't muslined). My SWAP needs more work (ie 4 dresses and a coat). It's going to be a busy 6 weeks!
