Another Purple Vogue 2934

February 16, 2014

A few months back, I made Vogue 2934 out of some woven purple wool. I liked the pattern a lot; however, I’ve never worn the jacket. The problems with the jacket were/are twofold. First, the fabric has some metallic gold woven into it, and it’s a little bit too disco for the workplace. The second problem was/is the button–I don’t like the placement.

So I decided to give it another try in more purple fabric. I’ve been saving this delicious plum fleece for several months. On one side it has a sweater face, and on the other, it’s fleecey velour.

I was scared to death I was going to make another wadder and waste this amazing fabric. I wanted to make something that showed both sides of the fabric, since both are equally beautiful. Since I knew the pattern, and since I could potentially use the reverse side for the cuffs, I decided to give Vogue 2934 a second try.

I did not line this version, and when I added the facing around the neck and front opening, I was able to turn it just a little bit so that the facing–made with the velour side out–showed around the neck and opening. I liked the effect, so I added a 2 inch strip of fabric–velour side out–around the hem. I attached it just like I attached the facing. I then used my coverstitch machine and stitched around the hem, the opening, and the neck.

I was able to recycle some decorative hooks and eyes that I took of a sweater that I bought at Goodwill to felt.

I like this version of Vogue 2934 wayyy better than my first version. My husband calls it my bat jacket. I say, bats should be so lucky!!!
