Vogue 1100 completed

Showing saddle stitching

The hemline shows a bit. I usually don't do anything to emphasize a horizontal, but I might add two rows of stitching to hide my pressing mistake.
The neck seam shows at CB on the hanger, but dh tells me it doesn't while being worn. I cannot see it, so I have to trust his word on that.

Ooooh so nice! And I like the stitching detail.
When I saw this pattern on vogue website, I told me that I was not mad of this style (I only loved the detail of the top and the dress... not suffisant to buy this pattern ;-) But now seing your jacket hum, perhaps... well I begin to change my mind!
Great job!

Read your review at PR and wanted to see a close up of the saddle stitching. Great Job!!!!1 I have this pattern and yet to make it. Glad you reviewed it.

I love the top stitching detail you added to this jacket. It will look really nice worn with black denim pants. I have the pattern and have held off making the jacket because it looks a little boxy in the pictures, though the line drawing depicts it slight fitted.
