We tested the sewingpattern Vogue V9247.
The sewingpattern is easy and a plain simple open-front shaped jacket. The pattern is ideal for variations and we especially love the long-jacket-variation.

We are enthusiast about these PLUS points:
We are a little disappointed about:
We created the Model D. long jacket but without the long fringes, as this looks a bit too much of a sort of boho-style. The long jacket is a really easy pattern and great for experimenting with fringes, trims and adding linings.
Creative ideas: trims en fringes.
We tried this pattern with a dark green, but very loose, woolen Bouclé fabric. We also added a Silk graphic lining and quilted it as in The couture cardigan jacket.
A long jacket (or coat?) to wear all day. To travel. For work. For the colds evenings during Summer. For indoors: an extra layer.
This jacket might look a bit cheap on the pattern: but it feels like heaven when you create the pattern and use the quilting style on good (not too cheap!) fabrics like a real great Bouclé and a real Silk lining.
