Wool Challis Jacket and Dress
This jacket and dress are made of Liberty of London wool challis. Vogue 2636 is a vintage model with interesting instructions. The seaming on both the jacket and the dress feature curves and points with lapped construction on those seams. The fullness in the bust area is darted and then gathered. There are lots of pieces to put together and it isn't a "quick" pattern. The jacket is lined and the dress is unlined with a snap and hook and eye side closure. Wool challis is a delicate fabric to work with. I loved the challenge and I am glad that it is a completed project.
