Pattern Review: Vogue 2894
100% Silk Dupioni (fuchsia/purple iridescent)
(out of stock, but can be reordered)
Prewash: No pretreament for the dupioni. The satin lining for the jacket was washed in my machine on delicate, short cycle with Tide HE.
Notions: Gutermann thread, Seams Great, and lace hem tape
Alterations: No pattern alterations were necessary (Praise the Lord!!!) Not a normal happening!
Construction Details: Jacket- Love, Love, Love the darts in the sleeve for tapering the sleeve cap.
Skirt-There is no zipper. The opening is in the left pocket. This allows extra ease to get in and out.
There was enough fabric for pants!
Conclusion: I will be making this pattern again in a beautiful black wool crepe.
Thank you Liz and great job! You looked fabulous in this outfit at the Christmas party. I am also checking out your coordinating shoes!
