Here's a spectacularly bizarre design from the new Vogues. There is plenty to wonder about here, but I had loads of cheap coating and a bit of time on my hands.
First off this is a "cut on the floor" type patterns with the main body just 2 huge blobs. I omitted the sleeves to make it more of a cape. This created some problems with the pleating and attachment to the yoke...although I can't say exactly why. The instructions and drawings are NOT very informative! You can see where I had to change the front fold and the old press line is still visible. The puckering really bothers me but I basted in the full facing and this will create more structure and support to minimize this. (Its OUT for the picture) Everything but the main body is interfaced with easy knit fusible. The pattern calls for batting and underlining but I was not about to go that complex route for what may result in a fancy OWL costume!
The armholes seemed to be restrictive so I altered that , although that may have been a result of my not installing the sleeves? I've gone over and over it and may have to concede that they would perhaps not work over a sweater without alteration.
For now I'm out of the olive melton (poly faux) and am waiting on some black to finish the project. Black collar and facing with a matching lining. Once it's pressed and finished I'll have to repost a picture and make a final critique.
