Mail Call…Part Duex

Oh my goodness…ask and you shall receive. In today’s mail is the elusive Vogue pattern #8369. WOW...the lady at Pattern Mania is fast and the item was so nicely package in a cellophane sleeve and shipping envelope. The UPS man was here as well with my Boucle fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics. I am thrilled to death for now I have some of the components and can now start making the jacket. At the very least get a start on adjusting the pattern and cutting and sewing a muslin mock-up. There are still a few other items I require like the lining and some good sewing thread but that is for another day.
TTFN... Happy Sewing !!!


  1. I love the bouclé. It looks like wool, is it.
    Bon courage for fitting your muslin

  2. Maricou the fabric is a Poly/Acetate/Acrylic
    blend that needs to be dry cleaned that I purchased from Gorgeous Fabrics. I decided to go with a reasonably priced fabric for the first jacket that way if there are fitting issues I won't be ruining a more expensive wool fabric. I am going to splurge on the nice wool boucle for the second jacket.

  3. mimi o check your emails I send you a message concerning the Threads issue you want.
