Pattern Review: Vogue 8627 Jacket

Sep 09, 2010

Style Tip: Choose a medium-weight fabric for a jacket that's suitable for several seasons.

This review was originally featured in Threads #150 (August/September 2010).

Vogue 8627

This jacket features a face-framing collar, easygoing three-quarter-length dolman sleeves, and inseam pockets. The look is stylish without being overworked with dramatic lines and elegant details. Upper and lower vertical darts line up nicely all around the waistline seam. The fit is loose through the bust area and fitted through the waist and peplum. On the back of the peplum is a diagonal seam that creates an eye-catching asymmetrical hemline. The jacket is lined and goes together easily and quickly. Our tester recommends that beginning sewers pay close attention to the cutting layout because extra steps are required to make all the pieces fit on a single layer of fabric to keep the nap running in the correct direction.

(Sized Misses’ 8–22 for busts 31.5–44 in. and hips 33.5–46 in.)

Style Tip: Choose a medium-weight fabric for a jacket that’s suitable for several seasons.
