I have V7975 I thought I would use with a great boucle from Emma One Sock, but now I realize I would look better with a "v" neck opening instead of the rounded one on the pattern. I found Textile Studio 1305 that has the neckline that I would want, but wonder, do I revise the neckline on the 7975 or revise the 1305 to have the princess seams. I am an intermediate sewer, but prefer quick projects.
These are two very different jackets with different style lines and fit. The Capri Jacket works well with knits (I have made it twice) and is a slightly boxier look. The Vogue will have a lining, where you will need to draft a lining for the Capri jacket.
Trying to change princess seams to no princess seams is a task.
If the Vogue fits you well already, you will be happier with drawing in your own V-neck. I have done it on a similar pattern and it works fine. BE SURE to make a muslin/test garment first, to determine where you want the V to land, etc., just as you would with the Capri jacket.
Loes Hinse patterns (Textile Studio before she went out on her own) are drafted to fit her body. Her basic block is different from Vogue. Another reason you'll want to make a test garment first. I had to change the center back of the Capri jacket and the shoulder slope (Loes drafts for a horizontal shoulder).
