Good Evening, I am considering sewing view C of Vogue 7860 in black ottoman. I do not want the ridges (if that is the correct name?) of the fabric going round my body, but up and down. Has anyone ever sewn with this fabric in this direction? If so, what was the outcome?
After viewing the pattern’s illustration could you also tell me if ottoman is a fabric that should be considered for making this garment. It is not one that is recommended.
Too, I have questions about altering this specific pattern as the princess seams appear not to be all the way down the front of the coat (jacket), but stop underneath the pocket. I am sure I need extra width at the hips and most likely the bust. For this type of pattern do I just add at the side seam, or what is the process for altering the princess seamline when it does not go all the way down?
Here are the line drawings for the jacket and coat which illustrates the princess seam that I asked about. Please excuse the skirt and pants as I do not know how to eliminate them.
